Inclusivity: “What does it mean and what is it all about?”

The aim of the discussion is to inspire, engage, and discuss cultural dynamics within our communities. As Jasmin Brand, CEO of Launch DFW said in a recent interview with Plano Profile, “I think it’s important that we reinforce the idea of inclusion rather than just diversity. Equality in the workplace is not just about making sure that a person of color, or a woman, is in the room, but that they have an actual seat at the table.”

Inclusivity is not about fulfilling a diversity quota; it’s about making sure that everyone is included.

Adrienne Trimble, general manager of diversity and inclusiveness of Toyota North America and Merary Simeon, North America vice president of diversity and engagement for PepsiCo will discuss this important topic in a panel discussion led by Rebecca Silvestri, executive editor at Plano Profile magazine.

The event will  take place at the new Toyota North America Headquarters in Plano, a vast 100 acre campus built using twelve acres of glass, 142,500 yards of concrete and 1,200 tons of Texas limestone.
