Please join us on March 23rd when Laurie Battaglia and Karen Mildenhall present "Shifting Gears: Exploring Gender Diversity". This half-day interactive presentation will examine values, culture, news, mores, beliefs and what is relevant today, while setting the stage for tomorrow. 



The Diversity Leadership Alliance is pleased to celebrate National Women’s History Month on March 23rd, commemorating the diverse and historic accomplishments of women. Through this lens we will shift gears to explore the past, present, and future thinking. Together, we will discover how we can learn from the personal and professional challenges and successes of women, and help create systems that honor everyone.

Women’s History Month is about men and women, so feel free to bring a colleague or family member with you.  Let’s start to shift gears and move forward.
