It is my privilege to welcome you to our 9th Annual Philadelphia Diversity and Leadership Conference. This year's theme is Inclusion: The Source for Innovation. Since the inception of the Conference, we have made great strides in promoting diversity. This year’s conference is centered on advancing our knowledge of two main areas: Diversity and Leadership. That is, we recognize that the demographics of the workplace are changing, and in a global economy, organizations must be innovative and creative. To achieve these goals, businesses must constantly strive for change and promote environments of inclusion, while also educating employees on the importance of these policies.
Our one-day conference will afford organizations the opportunity to explore tools and resources necessary to build a diverse workforce and remain competitive on the global stage. The event will also provide a valuable opportunity for professional development and networking.
In closing, I would like to thank our sponsors for their financial support as well as our volunteers for helping us achieve what will be a successful conference.
