OUT & Allies in Business (O&A) is hosting Johnson & Johnson on Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. in 124 Business Building. This event will feature several different Employee Resource Groups present at Johnson & Johnson (J&J). Each of these groups will speak on the importance of diversity at J&J and how J&J promotes diversity awareness initiatives for its employees.

Students interested in careers in business or STEM-related fields at J&J are more than welcome to attend this event to directly network with J&J professionals in a coffee house style setting. In addition to the panel discussion, plenty of coffee, tea, apple cider, hot chocolate, and a few desserts will be served.

Giancarlo Montjoy, the MBA Mentor of O&A, feels that it is essential for firms to commit to diversity in the workplace. “More and more companies are recognizing the need for diverse candidates and employees,” Montjoy said, adding that he thinks Johnson and Johnson is a firm promoter of diversity in the workplace. “Their customers, suppliers, and shareholders are diverse, so it makes sense that [J&J’s] employees would be diverse as well.”

O&A is a start-up student organization currently supported under the Smeal Diversity Enhancement Programs network. It is actively recruiting for interested individuals who either identify as LGBTA or who are supporters of the LGBTA community. Interested individuals may contact Tyler Drago at [email protected].
