Do you really understand how to make diversity an advantage in your workplace?

All of these challenges and opportunities have strong bottom-line implications'. Lenora was named as one of the twenty top influential diversity leaders in the US. Lenora co-authored TRAILBLAZERS: How Top Business Leaders are Accelerating Results through Inclusion and Diversity and is author of The Diversity Advantage.
