Joint Center Hosts Diversity Talks on the Hill
On October 27, the Joint Center organized two convenings that brought together senior Democratic and Republican staffers to discuss diversity with leaders from the corporate and public sector. The small group discussions allowed for chiefs of staff, legislative directors, and administrative directors to hear from executives about their experiences on how to diversify their workplaces and gain insights on which applications may be appropriate for the Senate.
Diversity & human resources professionals from Citigroup, Microsoft, United Technologies, Wilmer Hale law firm, General Motors, the City of Philadelphia, and Centene Corporation participated. The event had the goal of creating constructive channels between this network of experts and Senate staff that can be leveraged in future discussions as Senate offices take action to increase diversity and inclusion.
