Welcome to the Florida Diversity Council’s Quarter 2 Newsletter. The Board of Directors is extremely excited about the commitment that multiple individuals and organizations have demonstrated towards the FLDC’s mission to promote inclusion throughout the state. We are very pleased to welcome two new partners that have joined within this last quarter: Darden Restaurants is now a Platinum statewide partner and Sam’s Club has joined at the Bronze level within the FLDC’s Tampa Bay chapter.

The FLDC has multiple initiatives taking place over the next few months. The 6th Annual Florida LGBT-Allies Diversity Summit will be taking place in June with the purpose of exploring the ways in which organizations can support LGBT employees and customers and create an inclusive workplace culture. In August, the FLDC will be holding its 6th Annual Florida Healthcare Diversity Summit, which examines the additional considerations specific to the medical field that factor into the D&I initiatives of healthcare organizations, such as cultural competence, patient satisfaction, and community outreach. Additionally, the 2017 Diversity Best Practices Meeting Series will take place throughout the summer and into the fall, which serve to provide a comprehensive look into the diversity & inclusion programs that local business leaders have implemented within their own organizations.

In addition to these upcoming events, there are numerous ways in which you and your colleagues can become increasingly involved in the Council, whether at the statewide or local chapter level. If you would like to learn more about these various opportunities, such as membership or volunteer opportunities, please contact Sofia Reed, Regional Director, at [email protected].
