Diversity Café

The Diversity Café concept is built on the assumption that people have the wisdom and creativity to confront even the most difficult challenges. Given the appropriate context and focus, it’s possible to access and use this deeper knowledge about what’s important. If you’d like to make diversity more than just a word in your unit or department, invite us to host a Diversity Café for your team.
