This session will provide insight on what it means to be a diversity candidate. 

For years we have looked at diversity from the company's perspective. We have defended its benefits, calculated the ROI and impact on the bottom line. However, what does diversity mean to "diversity candidates?" How have their unique experiences formed who they are and put them in a position to add value to your organization. This session will help you understand the value added by diversity programs as well as some of their pitfalls. Learn more about the work/life experiences of diversity candidates from the viewpoint of a diversity candidate!
