15th Annual National Business Leaders Virtual Conference and Awards Gala
Teaching Best Practices in Diverse Recruitment to Corporate America and Corporate Secrets and Strategies to Diverse Job Seekers and Students

Diversity MBA will host its 15th Annual National
Business Leaders Virtual Conference and Awards Gala
on September 22 - 23, 2021 with its theme: REIMAGINE
THE FUTURE: Lean into Possibilities. This two-day
event will be an information filled virtual experience that
provides real talk on corporate people of color
recruitment, hiring accountability and trends, and
teaches people of color job seekers and students valuable
corporate insights on how to land their dream job and
how to be successful in climbing the corporate ladder.
The conference will also feature the book release: The
SkiNy On Diversity Recruiting – The Best Practice
Guide to Current Trends on Recruiting Strategies by
Pamela A. McElvane, CEO of Diversity MBA.

The conference features 115 speakers including national
and global chief executive officers and c-suite executive
leaders having honest conversations about social justice
issues in this current volatile social and political climate
and what diversity, inclusion and equity in the
workplace really looks like, and changing company
culture to ensure accountability, equity and measurable
progress is made. There will be serious discussions on
whether major companies are doing enough to accelerate
inclusion and equity practices, and corporate
accountability priorities in these changing times.
Panelists will dissect how the role of chief diversity
officer has changed or stayed the same and how this role
is or is not supported during this time.
Jobseekers can connect with representatives from the
top 50 companies considered the best places for
women and people of color to work, and who value
and demonstrate a commitment to diversity, inclusion
and equity. College students will be armed with a
wealth of information on new inside secrets from top
recruiters on how to land the interview and job offer,
learn insights on non-traditional careers for women
and learn what are the most popular jobs in today’s
new normal workforce.

“Our conference will be a safe space for learning and
engaging with chief executive officers and c-suite
leaders on the status and trends in people of color
hiring, diversity, inclusion, and equity in the corporate
workforce,” McElvane said. “Our conference offers
real engagement between c-suite executives from
major corporations who share real-life insights,
challenges and trends in diversity practices with job
seekers and students to enable them to successfully
navigate the career process from landing the interview,
getting the job and taking their career to the next
level.”

A new feature of the conference is the authors’ summit
which brings together 20 accomplished authors with
aspiring and new authors to educate and mentor them
on the internal, operational and financial workings
and trends of the publishing industry. McElvane will
also introduce her new book, The SkiNy on Diversity

Recruiting, and will provide up to 1,000 e-book
copies upon request to participants in the
publishing summit. McElvane is a first-time author
who shares her research findings, corporate trends,
challenges in corporate accountability and
priorities regarding diverse recruitment and hiring
people of color executives in the workplace. The
book hones in on statistics and case studies that
showcases whether corporations are willing to do
the work and make the commitment to setting
priorities and measurable goals to ensure diverse
inclusion is incorporated in the culture,
functioning and growth of the company.

“The SkiNy is a must-read guide for an inside look
at what companies are doing regarding hiring
people of color, shifts in accountability in diversity
recruitment practices and how it translates into
actions and measurable outcomes in the
workforce,” McElvane said. “We take a focused
look at how corporations’ diversity recruitment
practices and goals show some improvements but
still reflect an 8:3 ratio trend in hiring white
Americans and managers of color.”
