Mannheim Business School Diversity Conference 2018

General auf Startseite Alumni
19. September 2018, 06:30 PM - 19. September 2018, 10:00 PM (1 day)

Mannheim Business School and Srita Heide International invite you to participate at our 2018 Diversity Conference on 19th September: “Consensus and Social Cohesion in a Diverse Society”.

Join experts from business, politics, media, and academia and discuss on chances and challenges of diversity in our society and organizations. In all fields of our lives, different cultures and nations come together. Pro-diversity messages and thoughts are in the spotlight, for example that diversity increases our skills and competencies to face global challenges by fostering creative minds, making us innovative, flexible and pro-active problem solvers. However, there are different levels of perception in our society. We all share the responsibility to integrate the “new” into our “tradition”. At the same time, we always need a common platform for politics, business, media, and academia to find solutions and to master the challenges.

Please save the date and join our conference on September 19, 2018 at 6 pm onwards. Register here: https://goo.gl/forms/nqVq4grJwV9A3ELV2
