How does the growing cultural diversity in the U.S. population affect the way you work? These cultural differences include age, gender, race/ethnicity, differing abilities, social economic status, rural/urban/suburban, veteran, and more. What is the relationship between diversity, inclusion, and innovation?

This presentation will explore these themes and provide strategies for assessing and promoting inclusion and innovation.
