Diversity and Inclusion Town Hall at #TNNASummer19

By: TNNA Editor

Committed to creating a welcoming environment, TNNA is excited to host its very first Diversity and Inclusion Town Hall at the 2019 Summer NeedleArts Trade Show on Wednesday, June 19 from 6:15–7:15 p.m.

During the event, panelists from the needlearts community will discuss diversity and inclusion (D&I) topics such as ADA accessibility in stores, helping customers feel welcome and so much more. Overall, the goal of the town hall is to foster a sense of inclusion and belonging by appropriately welcoming individuals of diverse backgrounds, beliefs and values.
