We would like to welcome you to the third edition of the 2016 Louisiana Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about our past accomplishments in the second quarter and look forward to our upcoming events in the year.

This past quarter, the council hosted a Diversity Best Practices Meeting in New Orleans on June 21. The half-day event gave attendees access to diversity and inclusion best practices to implement within their organizations. We would like to thank all the facilitators and sponsors for helping to make this program a success.

Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, the council will continue to hold monthly advisory board meetings to educate local professionals and businesses on the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workforce and community. We hope to see you at one of these educational forums.

As the Louisiana Diversity Council continues to grow, we will add initiatives and programs, which address a broader variety of topics, such as corporate responsibility, women’s leadership, and the importance of education among our youth. We will also offer consulting and mentoring services specifically catered to your organization’s needs, whether it be the formulation of diversity and inclusion efforts, corporate responsibility programs, or any other initiatives you may require.

We hope you will have the opportunity to participate in some of our upcoming 2016 events and learn more about our organization, as we continue to champion, educate, and raise awareness about diversity issues in Louisiana – one organization and one community at a time.
