Protiviti Atlanta recently hosted a panel event focused on the importance of diversity in the workplace. Following a cocktail reception, keynote speaker Kelly Mehrtens, Managing Director of the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), The Trust, led the discussion Shifting Your Will for the Win. Mehrtens advised that every professional needs a personal mission statement and board of advisers for their own career development.
Following Mehrtens’ presentation was a panel discussion featuring Jenny Chapin, Partner at Savell & Williams, L.L.P., Tracey Lloyd, District Manager at JCPenney, Jose Jimenez, Senior Director of D&I at Cox Enterprise and Kimberly Dickerson, Managing Director at Protiviti. The panelists discussed a wide range of topics, including pay inequality and tips for salary negotiation; work life balance; the benefits and opportunities of a diverse work environment; and generational differences in how we look at and experience different cultures.
