In November, the University of Illinois chapter co-sponsored the 13th annual Potluck Multicultural Fest. The sequence of events began with an elaborate feast composed of cuisines from around the world. Audience members proudly presented dishes symbolizing their ethnic heritage. Every cuisine from Domada (a West African dish) to Sushi (a Japanese favorite) was represented. Guest speaker and alumna Carleen McElroy Thompson spoke about the growing diversity in the field of human resource management and gave accounts of her professional encounters with diversity. Audience members participated in a group exercise, and then concluded the day by expressing their dedication to equality and respect for others. At the close of the event, the remaining food was donated to a local shelter.
