National Conference words from MULYP member Erika Manuel:
"I had a great time at Conference this year. I really enjoyed the panel on how the Central Region can support diversity and inclusion efforts. My take away from that panel was that D&I in the hiring process is a lot simpler to implement (recruitment); meanwhile, it takes more effort to foster D&I throughout employees' tenure/matriculation in a company (retention). They have to be approached differently. The main way of retention is giving diverse employees a seat at the table to include their perspectives and to influence a company's organizational leadership that tends to be homogeneous and privileged. Also, company leaders must engage diverse employees and learn about their needs/wants/values, and include employee values throughout the company's culture."
