April 17, 2012 - PRLog -- On April 28 the Summers Group, LLC, a Michiana business development firm will present a Diversity and Inclusion workshop for the 2012 International Student Conference in Whitewater, Wisconsin.  

The two day conference, April 27 and 28, focuses on international student development and success.  The goal of the conference is to build a global community for international students that reaches beyond their institutions’ boarders.  The conference is a first step to be part of a global network that is in the making and will certainly grow beyond borders.  It is also planned to be a great opportunity to network and learn how international students can make the most out of their experience abroad.  Awards will be presented for student organization programs that enabled the success and integration of international students on different participating campuses.

“We’re honored to be asked to present this workshop for these students.  Recognizing the great value their diverse experiences can bring to future employers is important to the students and the employers as well.  Our workshops show students how they can make the most of their college experiences and then demonstrate to employers how they can add greater value to the organization.  The lessons apply to all students, but especially those of diverse cultures.”

The conference is sponsored by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, Whitewater Technology Park, City of Whitewater, University of Wisconsin Whitewater College of Business and Economics, Global business Resource Center, Fridgewaves LLC, University of Wisconsin Whitewater Global Education Center, Chartwells and Peer2Connect LLC.
