  • Senior executives from several organizations, including General Electric, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Coca-Cola, will speak about the importance of diversity in their organizations and how it influences business decisions.
  • A panel of representatives from the Kellogg Company, Skanska, Chase, Exelon and The Summers Group will discuss what "differences" mean in the workplace, the role of differences in organizational change and challenges of integrating a diverse organization. 
  • Keynote speaker Marv Russell will speak about the importance of diversity in hiring practices. A middle linebacker, Marvin was a member of the university’s 1973 National Championship Team.
