A few of our members attended the annual Pitt Business Diversity Conference. In addition to networking with our corporate partners including PNC and Dick’s Sporting Goods, our members attended break out sessions covering various Diversity topics in the workplace.
SBA members attended a session on bringing your personality into your career and understanding the positive aspects of surrounding yourself with unlike minds. We talked about the Myers Briggs Personality profiles and other means to see our leadership styles. In addition we discussed how unnerving and negative it is to feel like an outsider. We touched on how a negative attitude to others decreases productivity for the company long term.
We greatly enjoyed this experience and thank WIB, ENACTUS, and the HR Club for putting on this event.
