Diverse Professional Network kicks off year with fall event
President Tim Sands, Laura Sands, and Vice President for Strategic Affairs and Diversity Menah Pratt-Clarke hosted the first Diverse Professionals Network event of the 2021-22 academic year. The event was held on Aug. 19 at the Holtzman Alumni Center and drew more than 150 people.
The Diverse Professionals Network (DPN) was established to allow diverse professionals the opportunity to share contacts, ideas, and socialize with one another. This kickoff event was an opportunity to meet and network with peers who work and live in the New River and Roanoke Valley areas.
The group will host more networking and celebratory events throughout the academic year. Planned events include a rooftop networking event on Sept. 16 and a jazz brunch to recognize Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January. Stay tuned for more information about joining this dynamic group of diverse professionals.
