Free Networking Event Next Week—Broaden Your Cross-Cultural Understanding

Diversity in race and perspectives can add value to the workplace, but it can be uncomfortable to open up discussions on sensitive topics. Get insights on how to build better cross-cultural understanding during the virtual networking event “Coffee With a Black Guy,” presented by the ASA inclusion, diversity, and equity advocacy (IDEA) group. It takes place Tuesday, Feb. 8, 3–4 p.m. Eastern time.

The Coffee With a Black Guy session was so popular at Staffing World® 2021 that CWABG founder James Joyce III has agreed to return for another discussion with staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry leaders. The ASA IDEA group is sponsored by ASA corporate partner Monster and by Anthem, along with supporting sponsors TerraFirma and WorkN.

This networking event is free for ASA members and most qualifies for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit americanstaffing.net.
