Diversity conversations are going on in the workplace, but the question is: Are they honest? From racially-charged news headlines to employees going on bias tirades, there is no evading the conversation of diversity and inclusion in the workplace- yet we all do our best to evade it. In fact, a 2014 Deloitte report on Global Human Capital Trends cites ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ as a trend that companies are least concerned about. Contrary to this report, diversity is an important topic in business.

College Recruiter is hosting a series of three webinars this month to dive into these issues in an entertaining yet informative manner. Our guests are Steve Levy and Janine Truitt.
