The WITI Columbus Network offers members and event attendees a platform to develop meaningful connections, connect with mentors, gain exposure to job opportunities and learn tools for both technical and functional skills.
Background: In recent years, companies and executives have recognized that a mindset of renewal, reinvention and growth was needed to forward diversity and inclusion to the center of the organization. It also comes as no surprise that diversity is now a topic in the forefront of corporate America given our political and economic climate.
However, despite two decades worth of surveys and reports confirming "positive correlations between diversity and increased employee performance" (cited by both McKinsey, IDC & Forbes), how much are companies really doing to address the lack of diversity given the clear economic benefit?
Our Network creates a platform to navigate towards a solution that encompasses business critical content and resources to implement effective strategy for the advancement of the WITI community.
