Our Power Lunches are currently held at Harry & Izzy’s 4050 E 82nd St in Indianapolis.

Diversity & inclusion Meets team building
Increase the understanding of how assumptions, labels and unconscious biases associated with differences can, and often times do, create barriers in the workplace (recruiting, hiring, promoting, disciplining, retaining, and engaging top talent,)
Join us for a fun and interactive approach to looking at self and others differently such that EVERYONE can make their maximum contribution in the workplace.
