In this interactive presentation, Shannon will share the story of Goodwill NCW’s diversity and inclusion journey, including his thoughts on what these words really mean and how they play out in the workplace. He will also share specifics about some of the innovative initiatives Goodwill NCW has done under the diversity and inclusion umbrella - sharing ideas and approaches that can be used to increase inclusion in a variety of different work settings.
