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.

So many conversations today center on living better lives together through recognizing, honoring and respecting our differences and learning better ways to work with our peers.

Our panel will cover topics including:

  • Understanding our own inherent biases
  • How to react when someone’s actions/words are offensive
  • Techniques for handling uncomfortable conversations around race and diversity
  • How can we create a more inclusive environment in our personal and professional lives
