Making Diversity & Inclusion Part of Our Culture

Career Thought Leaders stands with our Black colleagues against racism and will be prioritizing and deepening the conversation around diversity, bias, and how we address those topics in our work.

We welcome your suggestions for topics, speakers, and resources specific to these issues in the workplace.

Please send any suggestions to Marie at marie@careerthoughtleaders.com or use this link to set up a time for us to chat: https://my.timetrade.com/book/B46DN
