Bridging the Gap will host its Spring Diversity Event on April 17 at the Maryland Science Center. The event will bring together minority and women-owned businesses with majority businesses in an atmosphere that encourages networking and educational opportunities.
Mayor Sheila Dixon will be the featured speaker. Following the Mayor’s address, business leaders will have the chance to participate in one of two concurrent seminars.
The first, “Business Strategic Planning”, will be led by professional consultants from the Deloitte Strategy and Operations group. This seminar is tailored to the needs of minority and women business owners and is centered on developing a strategic plan to propel a business to its next level.
The second group will focus on the topic, “Building a Robust Diversity Program’ and will explore best practices for larger companies in implementing diversity programs in both hiring and procurement. Speakers include diversity executives of Constellation Energy and Deloitte Consulting.
The Spring Diversity Event is co-hosted by Deloitte Consulting and sponsored by the Maryland Science Center.
