Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.

Title: Diversity and Inclusion - Making a difference with an enhanced definition: Outline suggestions that promote D/I growth will be presented to spur the discussion of Are Colleges and Universities making a difference in the workforce when it comes to D/I?
Diversity and inclusion are crucial parts of business and societal successes and advances today, and they must be championed at every turn. For instance, HR departments might establish hiring initiatives and goals, but these policies won't impact company culture if they aren't promoted.

True leaders will ensure that their company's or collegiate environment support of diversity and inclusion are not simply words in the handbook – instead, they'll proactively work to create a more well-rounded team. Does the Millenial workforce have a different view of Diversity and Inclusion? This presentation shall outline ways to effect a tangible, positive difference in a company culture through inclusive practices.

Part of the presentation will also focus on an open discussion on: Are Colleges and Universities making a difference when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion? What's working on your D/I campus? Are we preparing a well-versed D/I student for the workforce? These questions should promote discussion where new ideas and analytical information will be shared towards thought-provoking takeaways for attendees.
