It’s too early to tell if the Hawks will win the championship next year in the NBA but it’s clear they have Played it Forward Against Racism with Shaw leading the way.

Shaw will use this example as a case study to address the importance of multi-dimensional diversity and provide participants with actionable steps that they can take to incorporate inclusive leadership skills into their strategic business operations.
