October Monthly Event: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workforce
Thursday, October 15th, 2020
Speaker: Joy Fowler, MBA, CDP, Diversity & Inclusion Program Manager
In her role, Joy provides diversity programs that help to build strong internal community relationships at the Port of Portland. The connection between a well-maintained diversity strategy, robust programming, and a strong workforce is at the core of Joy's passion and belief in DE&I work. Prior to the Port, Joy worked in the area of diversity and inclusion for 5 year at the largest regional financial institution in Oregon, where she designed and implemented the diversity strategy, internal programming and measurements for success.
Diversity in the workplace is critical for innovation, different perspectives and more. This discussion will focus on what we mean by the term “diversity” and who we’re talking about. Why diversity is important for any workforce. Understanding the difference between Affirmative Action and Diversity and how a company or hiring manager can affect change immediately.
