NCGA CEO Jon Doggett this week attended the Bloomberg Equality Summit in New York. The full-day summit sought to “foster forward-looking conversations and spotlight successful business leaders who are paving the way.”
Doggett’s participation was part of NCGA’s commitment to creating a more inclusive and diverse organization.
“Being a part of the Equality Summit was a great opportunity to learn from successful leaders about their inclusivity strategies, and think about ways to implement them across NCGA,” Doggett said. “It was inspiring and thought-provoking to be a part of this important event.”
Doggett highlighted a quote from one of the panel sessions, “diversity and inclusion are not barriers to overcome but opportunities to be seized,” as an important takeaway from the event.
