Come join the OSI and the Emerging Leaders this week for a workshop on the intersection of diversity and leadership. As leaders, you want to recognize the strength of others and think well for a group as various factors of diversity play a huge role. The Diversity Awareness Partnership Group from the St. Louis area will lead this workshop and teach individuals how to incorporate leadership practices through the lens of diversity.
