Well, if you ask us, these changemakers have just started their latest diversity initiative. This month, the Uban League is launching a Diversity and Inclusion LAB and Incubator, created to deliver diversity, equality and inclusion in Corporate America by providing resources, top talent, and combining leadership and diversity best practices, creating the best work environment in which employees can thrive. “The NYUL has the D&I lab in response to calls from our existing and new supporters asking for help in achieving their diversity goals. Arva Rice, President and Chief Executive Officer of the New York Urban League, said in a press release. We know that the D&I Lab will provide concrete strategies and resources to help companies achieve their diversity goals,” she says.
