Diversity Matters: A New Mindset for Today’s Leaders
A three-part virtual series
January 12, February 16 & March 9, 2022
The terms “diversity, equity and inclusion” grab headlines as companies and communities reel from changes in our social structure. From the Black Lives Matter movement to rejection of gender normative roles, organizations and our culture are going through a sea change. This requires a new mindset for today’s leaders.

The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Wheaton Chamber and Innovation DuPage will host a three-part series designed to provide practical and informative programs to businesspeople in DuPage County. We can all agree on the importance of being as inclusive as possible, but what exactly does really mean? This series will answer questions about the current landscape, how to integrate DEI into your organization and how leaders can work together to be inspiring examples of inclusivity.
