Partner John Shapiro is scheduled to speak at the 15th Annual Diversity & Leadership Conference, presented by the National Diversity Council. The theme for this year’s Diversity & Leadership Conference is Inclusion: The Time is Now, and the conference will feature a keynote by Present Barack Obama. John is speaking on April 12th during the session entitled, "Essential Negotiation Skills."
The ability to negotiate – to advocate and compromise in order to seek a goal – is crucial for all members of an organization. This is particularly true for leaders as they seek to achieve goals and advocate for their organization. John's session will discuss the importance of negotiation for leaders, as well as how to bolster attendees’ negotiation skills.
The National Diversity Council is the first non-profit organization to bring together the private, public and non-profit sectors to discuss the many dimensions and benefits of a multicultural environment. The success of the Texas Diversity Council (established in 2004) served as a catalyst for the National Diversity Council, launched in the fall of 2008. The National Diversity Council is a forerunner of community based, national organizations that champion diversity and inclusion across the country. It is currently made up of state and regional councils, the National Women’s Council, the Council for Corporate Responsibility, and the Healthcare Diversity Council.
