    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Where Your Deep Passion Meets the World’s Hunger…to be Valued!

    This presentation will explain the differences and unique strategies for diversity, equity and inclusion; understanding the evolution of hate; how to interrupt unconscious bias, and patience in active and objective listening. As an outcome, you will become self-aware of your thoughts and actions, and acknowledge that we are all life-learners and this is a journey to being the best version of yourself.
