Please note that this event takes place on Wednesday instead of Thursday to accommodate the public holidays. It will also be a VIRTUAL session due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
This is such an important topic, one that SUGSA would like to explore further.
Diversity is being invited to the party; and Inclusion is being asked to dance. This is all my time favorite quote by Verna Myers. from classroom to boardroom; architect to fintech; brick ‘n mortar retail space to eCommerce marketplace. DiversiTEA is everywhere; but only when we put the kettle on, do we hear the sounds of intergenerational, multicultural, gender inclusive TEAms come together and talk! Talk about: enTEApreneurship, market-accessibilTEA, AgiliTEA, interoperabiliTEA and all other things that make socieTEA dance!
