We would like to welcome you to the third edition of the 2017 Pacific Northwest Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about our past accomplishments and look forward to our upcoming events in the year.
This past quarter, the council hosted our 2017 LGBT+ Roundtable on June 8. This half day event presented tools and resources to elevate the conversation regarding workplace equality. Attendees also had the opportunity to share best practices on what they are doing to advance LGBT polices within their organization. To learn more about this event, be sure to check out the article covering it in this edition of our newsletter.
Looking ahead, the council will feature events covering many various aspects of diversity, highlighted by the 2017 Healthcare Diversity Summits in Portland and Seattle on October 24 and 26, respectively. These events will feature dynamic leaders in the healthcare industry who will address all issues pertaining to diversity in healthcare that have impact on individuals, organizations, and the community. For more information and to register, please visit pacificnorthwestcouncil.org.
As the Pacific Northwest 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 2017 events and learn more about our organization, as we continue to champion, educate, and raise awareness about diversity issues in the Pacific Northwest – one organization and one community at a time.
