At this year’s summit, we hope to facilitate a variety of discussions, panels, and workshops from experts with direct experiences in recruiting, retaining, and developing diverse talent. At the conclusion of the symposium, participants will have gained direct insight in how to recruit, retain, and develop diverse talent, gained relationships with diversity and inclusion experts and also learned how to create a welcoming environment.
The primary audiences of the symposium are institutional leaders, university administration and faculty, corporate executives, HR, DE&I offices, and staff who have responsibilities for hiring and student academic success. We invite all agriculture, natural resources, and related science industrial leaders to participate and contribute to the dialogue and discussions to make your voices heard as we work together to “Collaborate. Cultivate. Motivate.”
