Alex McGroarty, author of Bridging the Gap- Reducing Gender Bias in the Workplace and upcoming works – So Now What, Harnessing Grief after Life’s Major Losses and Until We Meet Again, Leo, has had the opportunity to speak to a variety of industries, universities, and chambers as a keynote speaker on the topics of: gender equity, diversity, equity and inclusion and engagement of employees. Her experience and expertise in HR are welcomed by many as the result of her special ability to listen and the desire to help others. Many express the need for a deeper understanding of diversity, equity & inclusion which they hope will lead to feeling comfortable with the issues we deal with in life and the workplace.
