Diversity may be the 21st century buzzword, “but diversity is in crisis,” says Pam McElvane, CEO and Publisher of Diversity MBA Magazine. The eighth annual Diversity MBA Leadership Conference & Awards Gala kicked off in Chicago this week (September 16-18, 2014). Sponsored by Diversity MBA magazine, diverse leaders in all sectors have gathered for strategic sessions designed to enhance skill building, best practices, networking and champion the power of diversity.
With the shifting economic climate, Diversity MBA magazine discovered that many companies are not fully integrating diversity and inclusion despite the rapid changes in the US population. White women are better represented today, but people of color are not, notes McElvane.
