We would like to welcome you to the third edition of the 2016 California 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 California Diversity Council put on a plethora of events, highlighted by our Diversity and Leadership Conference, which took place in Northern and Southern California this past June. These full-day events featured insightful panel discussions addressing diversity and inclusion, while also honoring local leaders for their career accomplishments. Be sure to read more about them in this edition of our newsletter.

Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, the council will feature over a dozen events highlighting many different aspects of diversity, highlighted by our Top 50 Women in Technology dinner, scheduled for October 13. This event will feature the highest caliber of executive female leaders within the technology industry. These women are prominent leaders who have reached the top of their profession by being effective leaders in their organization. They drive change, innovate, and inspire others to succeed while contributing to business growth. For more information and to register, please visit top50tech.org.

As the California 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 California – one organization and one community at a time.
