About This Session

Diversity is critical to any organization’s ability to innovate and adapt to changing business landscapes, and many studies have validated this fact. While diversity and inclusion practices are ingrained deeply in federal contractors, they view diversity and inclusion as not only a best practice, but also as good business. Sherry Griffin and Amanda Vallejo of Ingalls Shipbuilding will discuss how to create a diversity recruitment strategy at your organization, including:

• Understanding the components needed to create a diversity recruitment strategy

• How to recruit with purpose and conduct the proper outreach needed to find diverse candidates

• Tips for building success into the environment and creating a culture that embraces differences

• Facilitating retention through additional programs and executive support
