“It was the most thought-provoking conference I have attended. So many wonderful keynote speakers such as Wema Hoover, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leader, Executive Coach and Culture Curator, with over 20 years’ experience with fortune 500 companies all over the world. I encountered many networking connections that share a common discipline from around the globe and was thrilled to represent Berea College, not only as an Administrative Assistant for Agriculture and Natural Resources, but for Berea College as a 25-year baby boomer employee!!”
