Millennium's Multicultural Network
Our Multicultural Network (MCN) promotes open dialogue to increase awareness and understanding of issues related to race, culture and ethnicity. The MCN supports employees though events and activities that provide an opportunity for impactful conversations, professional development and community outreach. Here’s some of our most powerful MCN events from the past year:

Professional Development: How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome
In celebration of Diversity Month, Millennium’s Multicultural Network held a professional development event focused on the nuanced challenges that may exist for diverse employees and provided solutions targeted to some of those specific challenges. Topics included identifying and overcoming imposter syndrome, building effective influence strategies, and creating your own personal brand.
