Editorial: "Diversity"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Next Tuesday, Montgomery will host the sixth annual Diversity Summit at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel Spa and Convention Center.

This year the Summit's theme will be "New Perspectives for Today's Workplace," with national speakers and break-out sessions focused on helping organizations develop new models to conduct business in this ever changing diverse marketplace.

Striving for diversity in the workplace is no longer just about race equity, but generational, age, knowledge and geographic diversity.

The more inclusive an organization is in all of these areas the better their chances to succeed because of the broad based pool of talent they would hold.

We applaud the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce for making this event a reality in our area for the past 6 years.

This commitment to diversity in the River Region will most definitely pay dividends for those in attendance and ultimately the companies and organizations these individuals work for – which is good for everyone.
