"There are no walls that separate the society we live in from the businesses and organizations we work in. If we expect to achieve all the benefits of diversity and inclusion in our workplace (greater creativity, productivity, and profit), then we will need to create a society to live in that values that diversity and inclusion as well.” (Excerpt from Reinventing Diversity: Transforming Organizational Community to Strengthen People, Purpose, and Performance)

It's a shame that those of us that cannot attend because of class schedule are not eligible for the raffle. I am sorry to miss the talk, and would like to read his book.
