Dear Diversity and Inclusion Advocate,
Thank you for your interest in learning more about the 4th annual Johnson Diversity Symposium. For the past 4 years, numerous companies and individuals have donated funds to sponsor this student and administrative collaboration between Johnson's Alumni Affairs and Development Office (AA&D), Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), Black Graduate Business Student Association (BGBA), Hispanic American Business Leaders Association (HABLA), Latino Business Student Association (LBSA), Out for Business (O4B), and Women's Management Council (WMC).
Johnson's Diversity Symposium, has become the largest diversity-related event in the school’s history. Each year, over 200 students, faculty, staff and professionals attend to discuss a wide variety of business topics. The combined effort from our diverse student organizations is intended to increase the diversity awareness and inclusion opportunities for students, alumni and corporate partners. The theme for this year's symposium is "The Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion" and we expect to again welcome speakers, participants, alumni and other guests from across a variety of industries. On behalf of Alumni Affairs and Development, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Diversity Symposium planning committee, and the greater Johnson community, I would like to thank you for your consideration. I hope you will partner with us to make the 2013 Diversity Symposium an even greater opportunity for networking, education, and training.
Nsombi B. Ricketts, Senior Director, Office of Diversity and Inclusion
