Last month, the city of Wilmington joined New Hanover County in creating a position to look at equity efforts within their government operations and services to the community.
Joe Conway started Jan. 18 as the city’s first chief equity and inclusion officer, coming from NHRMC where he had served as the hospital’s director of health equity and human experience.
In August 2020, Linda Thompson became the county’s chief diversity and equity officer.
Both join today’s BizTalk to share updates on their programs and goals in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion for the local governments.
WilmingtonBiz Talk is a weekly interview program on Facebook Live, which is rebroadcast on YouTube and numerous podcasting platforms. The Business Journal newsroom selects guests based on current events so our community can hear directly from newsmakers.
