New this year, we will have an employer panel discussing the opportunities and challenges when hiring a diverse workforce.

The goal is to help participants gain practical tools and resources that will improve the quality of service and ultimately create a diverse and inclusive workplace for both employees and clients. Overall, the conference will provide a great space for learning, sharing ideas, and helping combat stereotypes and biases.
