Guest speaker Travis Walker with Allianz will be presenting, "Diversity is Being Invited to the Cookout: Inclusion is Being Asked to Bring a Dish."

Increasing diversity in a company or industry isn’t merely the “right thing to do”, it’s essential to the life and health of a business.

Lack of diversity can impact your bottom line, affect your ability to attract and retain talent, and leave you behind in a rapidly changing world.

Here, we explore what diversity actually means, what it entails, and how it can strengthen the solvency of a company and help individuals perform better.
