Dennis Reigle, special projects business advisor at the American Institute of CPAs, presented “Remember, they are always watching” on April 12 during the 2013 Public Affairs Conference at Missouri State University.
Reigle’s interactive and engaging presentation highlighted the fact that our cultural and social norms are, to a large extent, driven by the behaviors we see modeled by both those around us in this media-saturated age. Who is watching, what behaviors are celebrated and do these lead to excellence and inclusiveness? Reigle posed many questions to the audience and really had everyone thinking about diversity and how that might affect inclusion. The complete presentation is available online HERE.
