I attended my first Diversity & Inclusion Council meeting and it was extremely helpful. I came away with two (not 1, but 2) solid ideas that I have already begun to implement for the diversity initiative at the Louisville Water Company. The support and the camaraderie that I received has already been a value added return on our investment. I am now on a crusade to get my co-workers to join their respective Councils.
