Laraine's vast experience makes her a sought after consultant and speaker on the importance of intercultural effectiveness with the capacity to both educate and entertain. Laraine focuses on cultural, religious, gender and generational issues and how they impact on organizational effectiveness and inclusiveness. She advises, mentors, and educates leaders and team members on the value of inclusive leadership.

I am honoured to be designing the content for the conference this year again. 

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for all attendees to "LEARN, THINK, and ACT". Many of us are questioning how we can make sustainable changes in and out of our workplaces to build more inclusive societies and communities .

We plan to provide a forum for challenging conversations and interesting dialogues and very much look forward to seeing the people who attended last year again and as many new faces as possible .

Please join us and bring your colleagues, associates, and friends.

Warm regards,

Laraine Kaminsky
