RocGrowth’s mission includes a commitment to promoting greater equity in our community.  We also attempt to empower the new leaders of Rochester and highlight our community’s great innovators.  With that in mind, we proudly co-produce this event with Conscious Capitalism.

Building a Diverse Talent Pipeline and Inclusive Culture: Works In Progress

We welcome Steve Metzger (LaBella Associates), Jeff Wight of (General Code) and Mohammed Ahamed (EDI) to discuss LaBella and General Code’s path to embracing a commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I) in their workplace. Implementation is a “work in progress” and they will share successes, setbacks and future plans. Mohammed will share his perspective as a D&I consultant to major organizations.

RocGrowth has adjusted to the restrictions placed on social interaction by adopting Zoom in lieu of our typical convocation.  We will moderate a 30 minute interview, followed by Q&A using the chat feature.

Stay healthy…and remain six feet apart.

Oh, please wear a mask, too.
