Anette Smith AFWA Guest Speaker for DEI

June 16, 2022 @ 7:00 am 7:30 am

What is DEI? 

Join AFWA via Zoom to hear Anette Smith AFWA Guest Speaker for DEI.

Diversity: Diversity is getting employees from various demographics and with different life experiences through the door.

Equity: Equity involves understanding that not everyone’s path is the same. 

Inclusion: Inclusion is getting those employees to stay, but more than stay, to feel so comfortable.
