PPAI Diversity and Learning Engagement Manager Julie Kwan joined the Rocky Mountain Region Promotional Products Association’s (RMRPPA) Mile High Expo in Denver, Colorado, on Wednesday to speak on diversity in the industry.

Kwan’s presentation, held before the show opened at Denver’s Mile High Stadium, focused on the importance of diversity and inclusion in both the strategy and growth of a business. Her session showed attendees how a salesperson who can relate to people with diverse backgrounds brings power to their pitch and conversations with clients, and how an employer who fosters diversity in the workplace reaches more people, grows their business and stays relevant with today’s culture.

Whether you’re engaging with potential clients or your employees, you have the potential to experience increased sales, productivity, innovation and so much more,” says Kwan.
