Unquantified Serendipity: Diversity in Development

Full Talk (40 Minutes)

What do you see when you look at a person walking down the street? Their physical traits, like their clothes, gender, race? Or do you see their untapped potential? I’m going to take a time out and discuss how we can see the potential in one another and be excellent allies to fostering diversity.

Full Talk (40 Minutes)
