On Thursday, November 7th, 2019 over 500 leaders in our community will come together for Diversity Awareness Partnership’s 12th Annual Diversity Dinner featuring keynote presenter Dr. Rohini Anand, SVP Corporate Responsibility and Global Chief Diversity Officer, Sodexo. This engaging, celebratory event brings together individuals passionate about improving our region to support Diversity Awareness Partnership’s innovative efforts as a catalyst for positive change.
We hope that you will join us for an evening of enthusiastic solidarity in our collective work, with pride for the past year’s successes and excitement for progress yet to come. This event will also raise essential funds for DAP’s innovative efforts in anti-bias education & youth programming. Through networking, arts, a silent auction, and an inspiring keynote speaker, we anticipate both the forging of new connections and an expanded sense of fellowship in our wonderful community.
What better way to achieve all of this than enjoying a meal with a room full of passionate leaders, each making hope and possibility a priority.
