NoonTimeU: 'DEI – Moving Past the Buzzword to Implementation'

Penn State Great Valley

Speakers: Karen Armstrong (Penn State), Tiffany Chaney (Baptist Health), Dave Paczkowski (Lyft)

Moderator: Christian Hicks

DEI — Diversity, Equity and Inclusion — is a “buzz term” that has taken the nation by storm in light of the social justice reckoning of 2020. In response, many organizations and businesses have sought to create or amplify their DEI practices. But is it that simple? And is there more of a reason to lean into diversity than social justice? Join Penn State Great Valley for a start of a conversation to:

  • Discuss how successful implementation of DEI practices increases profitability and innovation.
  • Learn how DEI is more than just race and gender, but also a strategy for organizational effectiveness.
  • Develop recommendations for how to start the DEI conversation.
