Starting a D&I Council in your Workplace
Desha Dickson - Associate Vice President, Community Wellness at Reading Hospital - Tower Health
A Diversity & Inclusion Council is necessary in today's business. The Council will foster a culture that is welcoming and accepting of everyone's unique background, perspective, and experience. According to Ms. Dickson, diversity encompasses a wide array of attributes including, but not limited to, religion, ethnicity, age, race, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, personality, and gender identity. The work of your Council is meaningful because it enhances the experience of employees, your clients, and communities.
