Diversity Congress II Convenes

NIH's Office of Equal Opportunity will sponsor Diversity Congress II on Oct. 30 and 31. Themed "Learning to Respect Diversity," the congress was developed in response to a recommendation by the 115 delegates who attended last fall's sessions that all employees be educated and trained in managing diversity. The 2-day, 5-session 1996 congress begins in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10 at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 30 with Dr. Samuel Betances presenting "Harness the Rainbow: Diversity and Change in the Workplace."
