On May 17, the Michigan Diversity Council hosted their annual Diversity & Leadership Conference in Detroit in an effort to recognize and empower multiculturalism and leadership throughout the state. This year’s theme was “Fostering Equity through Inclusion”.

“We were very excited to host the Diversity and Leadership Conference in Michigan,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder and Chair of the National Diversity Council. “We are very grateful to all the business leaders who traveled from across the state to be here and share their knowledge with us.”

The full-day event featured concurrent panel sessions that addressed topics regarding diversity and inclusion, leadership and professional development. Executives shared their insights regarding topics such as “A Brand called “You”,” “Creating a Diversity Strategy,” and “Millennials in the Workplace”. A series of awards were also given in recognition of leadership and excellence including the 2017 Most Powerful & Influential Women Award, and the 2017 Multicultural Leadership Award.

The Michigan Diversity Council would like to thank all the sponsors, speakers, volunteer and attendees for helping to make this event a success. Be sure to join us next year for another fantastic conference.
