Presenting The Case For Diversity

You are making a presentation to a CEO who is interested in understanding the business impact of diversity. 

Use our readings for this week (listed below), as well as one other scholarly article you find on your own, to create 6-8 slides, not counting at least one slide of references in APA format, articulating a compelling case for diversity and inclusion that is also empirically defensible. 

The presentation can be in PowerPoint or some other presentation medium that can be attached in doc sharing. This presentation must include at least 100 words of speaker’s notes.
