IUPUC panel to look at value of diversity in economic development

IUPUC’s Office for Women and the Center for Business and Economic Development are organizing a breakfast discussion tomorrow about the role diversity plays in economic development.

Lesley Bradley, coordinator for the Office for Women and an organizer of the event, explains that studies show increasing diversity is just good economic policy.

Bradley explains that studies show that greater diversity leads to business success. Even those who are not in a business leadership role can benefit from the panel discussion, she said.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Nichole Pence Becker. Panelists for the discussion will include:

  • Whitney Amuchastegui – Executive Director, Su Casa Columbus
  • Kevin Jones, Ed.D. – Associate Professor of Management, IUPUC
  • Ian Kohen – Director Corporate Responsibility, Cummins Engine and Component Businesses
  • Kathy Oren – Executive Director, Community Education Coalition

The Lead by Design: Inclusion Revealed panel will start at 7:30 at Mill Race Center.
