Young Moore is pleased to be a breakout sponsor of the upcoming Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Conference on August 9, 2019 at the Raleigh Convention Center.

The conference will wrap up with a keynote address by Janice Little, Global Chief Diversity Officer and VP of Talent Development at Lowe’s Companies, Inc.

Featured Speaker: 

Dr. Joanna Schwartz, Professor of Marketing at Georgia College

Dr. Joanna Schwartz has been a marketing professor at Georgia College for the past 14 years, focusing on consumer behavior, marketing research, and LGBTQ+ marketing. Previously, she did media research for Cox Broadcasting. Schwartz’s passion is diversity and inclusion, with a particular emphasis on LGBTQ+ inclusion. Combining that with her business background, she has a deep interest in helping businesses better understand their markets and in helping people better understand each other. As someone who is trans, she feels as though the trans/non-binary piece is not only powerful, but eye-opening, because people can see trans and non-binary people through the stereotypes that surround us.

Keynote Speaker: 

Janice Little, Global Chief Diversity Officer and VP of Talent Development at Lowe’s Companies, Inc.
