When Multiple Worlds Become Entwined…
It been a pleasure to serve as the Chair of The University of Saint Joseph’s Women’s Leadership Center (WLC) for the past three years. The WLC provides established female leaders, emerging leaders and those looking to enhance their skills with a forum, a network and coaching that will assist them with fulfilling their personal goals and professional ambitions.
We kicked off our fifth year of engaging and inspiring women in the Hartford area with a timely and thoughtful series of programs this past week—under the banner of Fostering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Today’s Workforce. Thanks to the sponsorship of The Hartford and the talents and skills of Tai Feaster, Programs Manager of the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), participants took part in some interesting and challenging discussions about the importance of creating a workforce that is representative of multiple perspectives and experiences. Participants also discussed how organizational leaders can help drive an inclusive and equitable culture, and gave some pointers on how to expand and enhance equity and inclusion in an organizational diversity plan.
