Distributors, Manufacturers Host Virtual Diversity Event

12 National Association of Electrical Distributors companies are teaming up to host “Inclusion & Innovation” a virtual “Don’t Miss” event for anyone who is involved with the supply chain.

ABB, Van Meter, Inc., Border States, Connexion, Eaton, Mayer, nVent, Rexel USA, Rockwell Automation, Schaedler Yesco, Schneider Electric, and Sonepar created the Electrical Industry’s “I Belong Here” organization as a way to promote an environment of diversity and inclusion that helps bring awareness, encourages courageousness conversations, and fosters a forum for open dialog and relationship building.

On November 16 at 10:00am Central time, the organization will host a virtual event called, “Your Brain is Good at Inclusion… Except When It’s Not”. Dr. Steve Robbins will be the keynote speaker for the event. Dr. Robbins describes himself as “A┬álife-long student of human behavior. For him, issues of inclusion and diversity are fundamentally issues of human behavior in a world filled with human differences.”

Dr. Robbins will provide insights on human behavior related to issues of inclusion, belonging, and diversity. He brings multiple perspectives from his background in communication, social psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. Attendees will also learn more about “I Belong Here” and how to become more involved in the program.
