Greetings from the Founder of the National Diversity Council, Dennis Kennedy

Dennis Kennedy

As founder of the National Diversity Council, I would like to welcome you to the second edition of the 2013 Arkansas Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about the upcoming year and the events we have planned for our community. Our most popular undertaking, the Women in Leadership Symposium, was held on April 16, with over 100 professionals in attendance. A panel of executive women from various companies in the Arkansas area was on hand to discuss professional development topics, and share their personal success stories with the audience. We look forward to maintaining this knowledge-laden event in Arkansas, and furthering the creation of a diverse workforce, where people from all walks of life will be able to share their fresh perspectives and viewpoints. As the Arkansas Diversity Council continues to grow, we will add initiatives and programs, which address a broader variety of topics, such as corporate responsibility, women's leadership, and the importance of education among our youth. We will also offer consulting and mentoring services specifically catered to your organization's needs, whether it be the formulation of diversity and inclusion efforts, corporate responsibility programs, or any other initiatives you may require. For a complete list of all our 2013 events, please visit our website at www.arkansasdiversitycouncil.org/ardc-agenda/agenda-2013. I hope you will have the opportunity to participate in some of our upcoming 2013 events and learn more about our organization, as we continue to champion, educate, and raise awareness about diversity issues in Arkansas - one organization and one community at a time.

Sincerely,
Dennis Kennedy
