This year, I got to attend the OCA National Convention's Professional Development Track. The topics covered weren't diversity specific, but they were surely relevant to today's business landscape: Dare to Dream, and the Tech Success Panel. One may wonder what makes a diversity forum necessary if the topics are general. The thing is, there is something special about starting the discussion from a common experience. This sets the tone for a dialogue that usually never sees the light of day in a general audience. There is nothing exclusionary about this. It's about giving voice and inspiration that is usually harder to find in other places, and creating an opportunity to connect and share them. In the same way affinity groups support and strengthen the members within the organization, diversity conferences do the same for the greater community. See below for my live tweets from the sessions.
