Most businesses understand that diversity creates value in the workplace, builds stronger, more innovative teams, and will be critical to addressing future workforce shortfalls. However, implementation often falls to the wayside as the day-to-day objectives of running a business take priority. You are invited to join others in the diversity and inclusion space to create a network that helps scale solutions across the U.S.

Hosted by the MTWC, this initiative will be facilitated by Tremaine Maebry, a Chicago-based lawyer and diversity and inclusion advocate.

Through this initiative, MTWC hopes to provide an information exchange platform that makes space for diversity practitioners, advocates and champions from various industry backgrounds to have a dialogue on diversity and inclusion initiatives. Through a series of interactive, multi-layered discussions, the community will explore best practices, questions, resources, information, concerns, suggestions, recommendations and challenges of making a diverse and inclusive workplace with the intent of transforming that information into sustainable, workable, initiatives.

Goals of this initiative are:

  1. To engage diversity and inclusion professionals, advocates from different industries, professional associations, generations, and geographic regions in meaningful dialogue and intentional actions
  2. To weave the principles of diversity and inclusion into sustainable, workable initiatives
  3. To identify impediments to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, and then propose solutions, and ideas on how to address those challenges

All diversity and inclusion practitioners from all industry sectors are welcome. For more information, or if you have any questions, please contact Maria Hart at maria.hart@wisc.edu.

Join the conversation by participating in this series of virtual roundtable discussions.
