Inclusion & Diversity Consortium
As various populations grow, and our nation becomes increasingly diverse, it is imperative for organizations to understand the changing demographics and the impact they will have on your business. In April 2017, Schnake Turnbo Frank held the inaugural Inclusion & Diversity Summit. The first of its kind in Oklahoma City, the event kicked off with a keynote by a national speaker, followed by panelists and local speakers. These experts shared their knowledge, best practices and insights on issues ranging from corporate culture, to supplier diversity, to ROI.
To continue the dialogue around inclusion and diversity, Schnake Turnbo Frank created the I&D Consortium. Our first meeting was held on June 29, 2017 and met quarterly for the remainder of 2017 to provide leaders in the community with an opportunity to network, learn and grow with I&D experts and other community leaders on their journey to making our workplaces and communities inclusive and diverse.
Beginning in 2018, we have moved to having monthly meetings (with the exception of July and December). At this time, and thanks to our wonderful sponsors, there are no membership dues and our meetings are open for everyone to attend with no charge for the meetings. This was all decided after talking with attendees at our first I&D Consortium in 2017, as we want to ensure that everyone has access to information, resources and the community discussion regarding Inclusion & Diversity.
