Start your morning with a stimulating conversation about diversity, equity and inclusion with the United Way Suncoast Young Leaders’ Society. Enjoy coffee, mini donuts and networking with young professionals from across our community to build connections, knowledge and professional skills.

Our panel will cover topics including:

  • Understanding our own inherent biases
  • How to react when someone’s actions/words are offensive
