Workforce Diversity Expert To Deliver Lecture On Higher Education Field

James H. Johnson, director of the Urban Investment Strategies Center at the University of North Carolina's Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise and the William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, will give a talk titled "People and Jobs on the Move: Implications for Higher Education" at Old Dominion University Friday, April 10.

Sponsored by the Office of Enrollment Management, the presentation is scheduled for 3-5 p.m. in 1002 Constant Hall. It is open to faculty and staff.

Johnson's presentation will be based on his research, which focuses on the causes and consequences of growing inequalities in American society, particularly as they affect socially and economically disadvantaged youth; entrepreneurial approaches to poverty alleviation, job creation and community development; interethnic minority conflict in advanced industrial societies; and business demography and workforce diversity issues.
