Presenter:      Dr. Lee E. Meadows

Topic:             Implementing a Diversity Strategy

The ongoing focus on the diverse workforce has brought with it many challenges that require the input and support of Human Resources. The process of moving from thoughtful concern to practical action is dictated by the extent to which the organization is willing to look at different ways to implement activities that make a meaningful difference within the structure, culture and practices of the organization. This presentation will focus on specific, implementable, strategies to bring diversity to a reality.
