Join ITA and Pinterest for an exciting half day program on the most pressing topics in Inclusion and Diversity today.  During this program, made up of short, activity-based conversations, you’ll walk away with a sense of what’s most relevant, new connections, and takeaways that you can adapt and implement immediately. The program will be rich with opportunities to learn from the experiences of leaders in the community, who have lived through many of the same issues being faced by your organization today! As Diversity & Inclusion efforts are constantly evolving, these topics will cover a wide range of issues and lessons to be learned. You’ll also get the opportunity to interact with your peers before and during breaks in the programming, enriching the discussion even further.
