Power.Biz Hour: Sponsored By TD Bank: The Value of Differences
Program Title: The value of differences.
Program Description: Every characteristic an individual possesses is what makes us different. Our experiences, our background, and perspectives shape our life; and when individuals with varying identities feel welcomed by others who are different, great things start to happen, such as inclusion and belonging. Let's take this time to start a conversation on DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) by exploring what makes us different, and how embracing those differences can help us build bridges and experience our connections to others in a richer way.
