YOUNG LEADERS: TYPros’ Diversity and Dialogue is perennially successful at raising awareness of diversity issues through dialogue. This D2 focussed on sustainability. Left to right here are event organizers Jared Vasquez, diversity crew co-chair; Carmela Hill, diversity crew chair; and Risha Grant, former diversity crew chair and publisher of Exposure Magazine.
Tulsa’s Young Professionals diversity crew hosted its signature event, D2: Diversity & Dialogue recently. The event is designed to encourage community members to discuss how diversity and sustainability issues overlap.
More than 60 individuals attended the event at the Petroleum Club to participate in the roundtable conversations and to hear from Keynote speaker Marilyn Ihloff, owner of Ihloff Salon and Day Spa and one of Tulsa’s leading green business advocates.
The D2 roundtable format is modeled after the World Cafe style. Visit The World Cafe for information about World Cafe.
