Greetings from the Founder,

Dennis Kennedy

Dennis KennedyAs founder of the National Diversity Council, I would like to welcome you to the inaugural edition of the Tennessee Diversity Council Newsletter. We are very excited about the upcoming year and the events we have planned for our community. One of our most popular events across the nation, the Women in Leadership Symposium, will be coming to Tennessee in 2015. The symposium has evolved over the years as meeting grounds for innovative business people to shape the face of diversity in their community.

Diversity in the Military

"From this country's inception, the military has created effective and cohesive fighting units from a fractious and heterogeneous population. Successive large waves of European immigrants resulted in military units with mixed English proficiency; the loyalty of immigrants from enemy nations during times of war has repeatedly been a source of considerable anxiety; and the inclusion of racial and religious minorities in the military has occurred against a wider social backdrop of ethnic hostility, harassment and violence.

Know Your Personality as a Manager to Get to the Top

Does your leadership style wear like a bad suit? As a 19-year-old entry level cook at Chicago's Ritz-Carlton, Sarah Stegner remembers concentrating on nothing but food, six nights a week. As she began to prove her skills, she moved from cleaning fish to being an assistant chef in charge of cold foods. Then came a promotion to sous chef, and finally to her current position as a dining room chef, a job she's held for nine years.
