Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce’s Educated Voices on Leading and Valuing Equity (EVOLVE) Series is back as a four-part series for 2023.
The series is for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of concepts related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and will explore the opportunities created by inclusive workplaces. The EVOLVE Series is sponsored by TD Bank.
Dr. Franklin Ellis, associate dean and director of the Center for Inclusive Communities at Furman University, is the instructor for all four parts. He also taught the final class of the 2022 EVOLVE Series.
Ellis is a Florence, S.C., native and graduate of Coastal Carolina University with more than 20 years’ experience in higher education. He earned a doctorate in marriage and family therapy from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Westwood, Calif.
This year, the series is designed to begin with an introduction to DEI and then build on the foundational knowledge with each subsequent session.
Registration costs $50 per person and includes attendance at all four workshops. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the fourth session. All sessions will be held in the boardroom at the chamber. Membership with the chamber is not required to participate.
Sponsorship provides our investors the opportunity for recognition and publicity. For some events, sponsorship will also include tickets to the event, the opportunity to speak to attendees or to distribute promotional items.
