    “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance” coined by Vernā Meyers, Esq., a nationally recognized expert on diversity and inclusion, demonstrates the necessity for us not to look at diversity as a one and done solution to meet an organization’s diversity’s so much more than that. Inclusion takes that diversity and mixes it all together drawing out the uniqueness everyone brings to an organization, lifting its employees and successfully moving the organization forward towards social and financial success. Join Anthony & Judy as they explore unconscious bias--discussing what it is; how we address it in our everyday lives and how we can address it in our workplaces. Be prepared for a lively, interactive, and very important discussion about unconscious bias.

    2. Gain an understanding of the concept of unconscious bias and its impact towards our everyday lives and our diverse workplaces
