I recently had the opportunity to join a diverse panel of industry professionals to speak about my career experiences.

Shades of Green: A Diversity Forum

Whether attending as a listener or a presenter, there are a multitude of benefits, including learning about new areas of expertise, hearing issues firsthand from clients, and networking with other industry professionals.
