There is currently a call for workshop presenters. Interested parties are invited to submit workshop proposals in support of the DCTC Education Program. The Program is comprised of workshops and forum on an array of diversity, inclusion, and social justice issues, particularly as these relate to a healthy workplace climate and culture. The DCTC is seeking experienced presenters to share their knowledge and expertise.
