All diversity and inclusion practitioners from any industry sector are invited to join in this series of virtual roundtables to share best practices and discuss challenges.

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. These roundtables will help participants move the needle toward sustainable, workable initiatives.

This virtual roundtable series is hosted by the Midwest Transportation Workforce Center as part of its Diversity & Inclusion Initiative.

Each conference call is limited to 50 participants. Participation is free. Registration is required. For more information, or if you have any questions, please contact Maria Hart at maria.hart@wisc.edu.
