New Opportunity for Leading Diversity and Inclusion Programs

Workforce diversity is no longer an aspiration—it's the norm. While diversity brings substantial benefits to organizations, it also brings management and leadership challenges to maximize and capitalize on those benefits. That's why Towson University has developed the Leading Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace program.

Leading Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

May 12–13, 2020 | TU Minnegan Room


This new program is an instructor-led, interactive two-day experience for business, education, government, and non-profit leaders. Registration includes exclusive access to all program materials, light breakfast, and lunch.
