Curating Diverse Companies and Communities

Wednesday, August 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By Women's Network
300 S. Providence Rd., Columbia, MO 65203


The Journey Toward Inclusive Excellence committee is a collaborative union of local businesses, organizations, and leaders working together to make Boone County the first inclusive excellence community.  At this LDR, we’ll explore this initiative, which challenges us all to be more aware of our biases and the roles they play both personally and professionally. Through this discussion we’ll learn how to better curate companies and communities where all can thrive and feel valued. Featuring Kari Utterback and Verna LaBoy of the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health & Human Services.

LDR’s are great, free professional development opportunities lead by esteemed professionals in Columbia. Discussions are free to attend and are open to members and non-members. Bring your lunch and join in on the conversation, or sit back and take it all in!

Don’t forget to bring your business cards for networking, and your lunch if you would like to enjoy it during the discussion! Please register to help us plan for seating.
