For NewCo this year we’re trying something a little different. We’ve curated eight track around different themes. One of those tracks is Diversity and Inclusion.
These sessions all revolve around diversity of ideas, experience and people. The Diversity and Inclusion track highlights NewCos owned and operated by minorities. It also features organizations that help minority owned businesses succeed. This track offers you the opportunity to contribute to the discussion on how we ensure everyone prospers from our economic development efforts.
Companies in this track include HYUR Staffing Services where you can learn how to get noticed by hiring managers. You can also hear from LISNR, the startup that uses inaudible tones to enable connected experiences that otherwise wouldn’t happen. Or you can find out how to build identity and self-worth with hip-hop at Elementz‘s session.
Here are just a few more sessions in the Diversity and Inclusion track.
ConnXus – Hear Rod Robinson, ConnXus CEO, talk about why a culture a diversity matters to Millennials. The presentation will also discuss moving from supplier diversity to supplier inclusion.
