Value of Diversity & Corporate Responsibility (Panel)

Description

Success in the modern workplace requires an understanding for an appreciation of diversity - both that which exists within the US workforce as well as globally. In recognition of this, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) lists global and intercultural fluency as an essential component of career readiness among college students. Join us for an engaging discussion with a panel of organizations from Western NY that exercise and display commitment to diversity in their workforce.
