Compete Through Service Symposium

April 1st | Scottsdale, AZ

The annual Compete Through Service Symposium is the only conference of its kind that brings the most innovative minds in business and engaging academic thought leaders together to advance the science of service. Chief Social Responsibility Officer, Michelle Cirocco, will ask an important question to attendees: Will you hire me? That’s the ask. Millions of people with criminal records are released from prison into a society that’s unwilling to give them a second chance to learn, to grow and to be better than their worst misstep. As a business community, it’s time for us to remove barriers to employment, expand our workforce strategies, and commit to a second chance employment model that enables this qualified talent pool to begin their climb up the corporate ladder.

The Conference Board’s Diversity & Inclusion Conference

June 2-3, 2020 | Brooklyn, New York

There is a direct line between effective diversity and inclusion (D&I) and organizational performance. Effective D&I, starting with individuals, liberates the potential in all employees and translates into success for the organization. Failing at D&I is a missed business opportunity. Now in its 24th year, the 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Conference builds on the collective experience of the four D&I Councils of The Conference  Board.

This year’s conference in Brooklyn, New York will feature Televerde’s Global Head of Communications, Kellie Walenciak, as she speaks with Yariela Kerr-Donovan, Senior Director, Department of Human Resources, Strategic Workforce Development for Johns Hopkins Medicine about the importance of the successful employment of two often overlooked groups – those currently and formerly incarcerated.
