Description

FountainHead RI will host it's first panel event of 2020 on Monday, June 8, 2020 with our initial topic of dicussion being: "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion." This event will be held at The Guild: Tap Room, located in Pawtucket, RI and will feature experts in the DEI space from both right here in Rhode Island as well as the Washington D.C area. Business professionals and community leaders are highly encouraged to attend.
