Studies show it pays to create a more diverse work environment. Not only is diversity the right thing to do, it’s good for business, promoting higher levels of engagement and bringing new skillsets to the team. 

Join us for our opening event of the season, where we’ll explore the opportunities and challenges of creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. A panel discussion, facilitated by USM Corporate Partners Faculty Chair Richard Bilodeau, and breakout sessions will leave you with specific action items that you can take back to your own workplace.

Our panelists include:

  • Betsy Peters, Founder of MaineCanDo
  • Tae Chong, Manager of Social Enterprise and Workforce Development of Catholic Charities of Maine
  • Lelia De Andrade, Senior Director of Grantmaking Services at the Maine Community Foundation
  • Samantha Frisk, Coordinator of Service-Learning and Volunteer Programs at USM.
