The HR Section is presenting Diversity & Inclusion.

We have focused on Diversity & Inclusion and to what end? No real meaningful outcomes have resulted. Why? Because "Diversity is NOT Inclusivity"

What you will learn:

  • Diversity and inclusion are two different concepts.
  • Diversity concerns differences among employees in religion, ethnicity, gender, nationality, age, physical ability, and so on.
  • Inclusion means valuing these differences.
  • To get a wide variety of original ideas from your workforce, bring people of different backgrounds, sensibilities and experience together.
  • As you integrate them into your operations, you’ll gain their insights on business and marketing operations, on new products or services, on new customers, and on other pertinent issues.
  • Properly implemented, such innovation drives corporate growth.


Our speaker is Susan Freeman, CEO & chief Client Happiness Officer at Freeman Means Business .

Susan’s goal is to help women in business communicate effectively with the world -- and to help men communicate effectively with women in business!Susan’s training draws on her experiences as a sales executive in the financial services industry, her business development and leadership training in the legal industry, and her graduate-level studies in Communication. Susan’s passion for helping women succeed is long-standing. She co-founded “Women’s Business Connection” in Massachusetts and “Girl Power” with over 6,000 followers. She also teaches “Girls in Politics,” a program created to introduce girls to politics, policy, and the branches of government. Susan is currently enrolled in Cornell University’s “Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship.” Her enthusiasm for the benefits of building meaningful relationships has made her a great connector and as such, she has over 15,000 followers on social media. As an ENFJ, she excels at building relationships and teaching others to do the same. She helps professionals communicate effectively in order to develop new business. She trains professionals to use client-centric insights to assess needs and identify solutions that meet strategic goals.
