Why Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Should Be Part of Your Business
Please join us for our September 17 Chamber Luncheon at Heritage Golf Club at 11:30 am. Hilary Sloat, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for the Hilliard City School District will be our guest speaker. One of the main benefits seen with DEI work is an increase in empathy for and awareness of others in general. This translates to increased team-building and more positive coworker relationships. Simply put, reinforcing robust DEI programs helps every employee to show up each day without fear of being their true selves. This fosters higher degrees of engagement, productivity, and innovation that contribute to increased revenue. Plan to join us for the luncheon to learn more about this important topic.
