Leading industries and community stakeholders across the region have started to aggressively address equity and diversity in the workplace.  However, starting a conversation about diversity in the workplace can be uncomfortable. At this February 28 Chamber Business Rounds: Executive Perspectives event, engage in an open dialogue on diversity with our panel of experts.  Learn how companies can strategically and intentionally develop and implement plans to create a diverse workplace from the top down.   Explore how your business can create a  higher standard, build a better brand from diversity of perspectives, and foster a workplace in which every employee can personally and professionally thrive.
Panelists include:

  • Jarrett Felton, Senior Financial Advisor, Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner & Smith, Inc.
  • Beatriz LeBron, Commissioner, Rochester Board of Education and Community Health Worker
