What is our Diversity Library?

Our diversity library is for companies who want to host sessions for their employees relating to diversity, equity & inclusion.  Our sessions are presented by subject matter experts who work hands-on, in our community at a local nonprofit.  They are 60-minute sessions that include Q&A. 

If you would like to learn more about these sessions for your company, please schedule a 30-minute Zoom call (be sure to include dates/times that work for you).
