We would like to welcome you to the third edition of the 2016 Illinois Diversity Council Newsletter.

This October we will be hosting one of our most popular events, the 3rd Annual Leadership Conference in Chicago. This conference will afford organizations the opportunity to explore tools and resources necessary to build diverse workforces and remain competitive on a global stage, as well as a valuable opportunity for individuals to network together and grow in their knowledge of diversity and leadership, which can be utilized to craft long and distinguished careers. Finally, our speakers and various panel sessions will offer a unique perspective on a plethora of topics, including the creation of a diverse workforce, essential leadership skills, personal branding, and diversity and inclusion best practices.

As the Illinois Diversity Council continues to grow, we will add initiatives and programs, which address a broader variety of topics, such as corporate responsibility, diverse leadership, and the importance of STEM focused 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. For a complete list of our upcoming 2016 events, please visit our website at www.illinoisdiversitycouncil.org.

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