Earsa Jackson to Lead Session at the 2020 International Franchise Association Convention

Feb 5, 2020

On February 9, 2020, Clark Hill Strasburger Member, Earsa Jackson, will be leading a discussion on Diversity Declaration at the 2020 International Franchise Association (IFA) Convention in Orlando, Florida. The IFA Annual Convention is franchising’s biggest event for business development and personal growth. It will include almost 50 compelling sessions and countless networking opportunities.

With America’s communities, demographics, markets and consumers becoming more diverse every year and with diversity and inclusion rising as key values held by employees and consumers alike, franchising has challenge and an opportunity ahead of it in 2020. Continuing to lead the economy in growth for the next decade as we have in decades past will only be possible by also becoming a leader in diversity and inclusion. The franchise community will draft and publish a Diversity Declaration in 2020, setting the goal of making franchising the most diverse and inclusive sector of the US economy by the year 2030.  Don’t miss a chance for your company to have a seat at this table from day one. Drafting begins at this round table session at Convention 2020.
