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.

Steve is one of the top 100 most social HR folks & influential recruiters on Twitter and ERE’s first blogger & group leader. Steve can be followed on Twitter @LevyRecruits.
