NEW BRUNSWICK – “Diversity impacts each and every one of us,” said American Conference on Diversity President and CEO Elizabeth Williams-Riley during the “Reflections on Diversity: Defining Moments” forum held on June 6 at L’Oréal USA headquarters in New Jersey. “Our differences intersect in our workplaces and influence the relationships we have with our colleagues and constituents creating defining moments in diversity.”
The event, which marked the mid-point of the American Conference on Diversity’s yearlong 65th anniversary celebration, brought together the region’s diversity thought-leaders from public and private industry for an evening of networking and education. “We’re providing you with resources today that can help you in your diversity work,” said Williams-Riley before an audience of nearly 100 chief diversity officers, EEO directors, educators, and media professionals representing more than 35 different agencies.
Various diversity resources were also available for participants, including recent issues of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, DiversityGlobal magazine, and the American Conference on Diversity newsletter and multicultural calendar to help employers plan better and avoid cultural scheduling conflicts.
