Atlanta, GA, March 19, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Trading Places and Family Impact Restoration Ministries invites community leaders, local officials, all stakeholders, businesses and organizations to the Diversity and Leadership Breakfast Buffet, Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the historic Mary Mac’s Tea Room from 9am to 11am.
When people look at and hear what is happening in our society today, they can’t help but to realize the alarming need to understand diversity. Every business and organization needs quality leadership to be successful in a highly competitive world and diversity is a reality that is here to stay. Its impact is increasing exponentially as our demographics continue to change.
The Atlanta metro area is the most diverse in the Southeast United States. There are over 300 nationalities in this area. By 2023 half of all U.S. children will be People of Color (non-White). Atlanta’s businesses and organizations must learn how to adapt and learn to connect across cultures, or they will be left behind. For this reason, the Diversity and Leadership Breakfast Buffet will give Atlanta’s leaders a vision for diversity and help them learn how to work with all types of people to create a change for the betterment of their communities.
The keynote speaker, Mr. Al Vivian, CEO of Basic Diversity, Inc. one of the nation’s oldest diversity and inclusion consulting firms, will share strategies on how to understand and connect across cultural differences. For over 20 years, Mr. Vivian has worked with organizations of every size -- Fortune 500 companies (Coca-Cola and Ford Motor); massive government agencies (United States Army and National Security Agency), colleges & universities (Emory, Michigan State, Morehouse), all the way down to small nonprofit organizations to create diversity competent leaders at every level of their organization.
For $35, businesses and organizations will get strategic plans for creating environments that are inclusive of all types of people in order to be viable.
