2017 Diversity and Inclusion Summit
Project Equality believes in equality and justice in the workplace. We unite the corporate, nonprofit, education and religious communities into a force for equality, justice and fairness in the workplace. Through facilitated discussions, community leaders identify and establish best practices that enhance workplace fairness. We work collaboratively to spotlight the best resources in our region that empower fairness in the workplace.
The workplace should be a place employees can thrive and grow. Discrimination is still common in the workplace. It takes many forms. Disparate treatment due to race, sexual harassment towards employees, reprisals because of sexual orientation, terminations due to age, ability/disability, age or religious bias. Project Equality works to raise the awareness of all forms of discrimination.
