The second annual event, now a national, online effort, is designed to examine diversity and inclusion topics through a day-long experience organizers suggest will widen perspectives and grow understanding – not only during times of transformational change, but also as best practice. The event is a program of the Greater Omaha Chamber.
The call for submissions is open to all, and organizers suggest presentation topics focus on:
- Workplace DEI – Managers
- Workplace DEI – ERG’s (Employee Resource Groups)
- Workplace DEI – Employment Practices & Strategy
- Community DEI
- DEI for Individual Advocates
Prospective speakers are invited to apply online. Applications close May 1, 2020.
