PURCHASE, N.Y. -- The Manhattanville College School of Business will observe the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with a special colloquium Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the campus’ historic Reid Castle.
The panel will explore the direct and residual impacts of the act on diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace. Panelists will engage in conversation about the history of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, emerging trends, and best practices in the arena of diversity and inclusion. The objective of the symposium is to encourage and empower attendees to become agents of change. The following are the panelists:
- Rachel Cheeks-Givan, director of global diversity and inclusion, PepsiCo
- Valerie Greenly, director of global client services, RW³ CultureWizard
- Evelyne R. Matthews, chief executive officer Matthews and Matthews Consulting
- Mona Siu-Kan Lau, adjunct faculty member, Manhattanville College; co-founder of Women on Wall Street and European Women in Business
Each panelist will provide a unique view of issues – such as disabilities, race, sexual orientation, culture, nationality and values – based on their field of work. “Manhattanville College School of Business embraces diversity as exemplified by our student body and faculty,” said Anthony Davidson, dean of Manhattanville School of Business. “This event, honoring an important milestone in American history, is another example of Manhattanville’s commitment to its culture of inclusion and equality.” The panel will be moderated by Arthur T. Matthews, Manhattanville College adjunct professor. The event, which is free and open to the community, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.
