DiversityFIRST™ Initiative was founded with the vision of actively addressing issues of inequity in the workplace.

As more diverse Millennials enter the workforce, there are a number of factors working against the development of their successful careers. Issues such as increased competition, an unstable economy, changing retirement tendencies and generational prejudices all work in tandem to create a business environment that is often unprepared to successfully leverage millennial talent.

We aim to build a pipeline to create opportunities for Millennials that continue to be underrepresented in the workplace. Through our programs and events, students and young professionals will have access to resources that directly contribute to their educational and professional growth.

We invite you to take a stance and support our initiative. It is important to remember that nothing worth having comes easily, and I believe that workplace inclusion is worth its weight in gold. It has taken many years of hard work and determination, but we are very proud to present to you, The DiversityFIRST™ Initiative.
