Community

Partners in Diversity aims to create a competitive advantage for our region by attracting, retaining and developing diversity influencers and professionals of color.

We believe community engagement is critical to accomplish this goal. Any organization can post upcoming public
 events to our Community Board. While Partners in Diversity members can also post open board and volunteer opportunities to the Community Board.
