Join the A2Y Chamber November 7 for an interactive, open, and honest dialogue with co-founders Lorenzo Sewell and Evans Panton from Diversity-N-U. Diversity-N-U is a cultural consulting and coaching firm focused on helping organizations reach their DEI goals and to become better leaders by embracing diversity in their work and lives. By embracing diversity, businesses can achieve higher levels of success, create a workplace of collective understanding and mutual respect, and build a more equitable and inclusive work culture.

Sewell and Panton, from two different backgrounds, met not too long ago, became friends, and the rest is history. They will provide tools, strategies, and best practices to help create a culture shift that is embraced by your organization. They will talk about cross-cultural communication, proper etiquette in different cultural settings, and take you through a four-step process to help you understand race, its beauty and challenges. Come hear their story!
