Advancing the State of Diversity and Inclusion

Register now for OSCPA’s inaugural Crossing Bridges Summit.

OSCPA created this event to bring great minds together to learn to navigate the complexities of diversity and inclusion (D+I). Long considered the right thing to do, D+I training has not always been viewed as essential. That mindset is changing.

OSCPA invites you to join your peers and D+I thought leaders for this important conversation. Together, we will learn about the complexities and value involved in bringing awareness and sensitivity training to employees with a goal of building a more diverse and welcoming business culture.
