Former King County Executive Ron Sims will be the keynote speaker at the third annual Equity and Inclusion Conference hosted by the University of Washington Bothell Feb. 24 in partnership with T-Mobile. More than 350 attendees from the campus and across the community are expected.
Details and registration are available online: http://www.uwb.edu/diversity/equity-and-inclusion-conference. Once again at the conference, student groups will compete for a T-Mobile grant of up to $5,000 to support a project solving a diversity issue.
Issues related to equity and inclusion are now ground zero throughout America, says Terryl Ross, UW Bothell director of diversity.
Data show diverse and inclusive teams outperform their competitors, says Kaycee Kiesz, T-Mobile diversity and inclusion senior program manager.
Equity and inclusion are core values of UW Bothell as it consistently strives to create a safe and welcoming learning environment.
