Hershey Area – All Things Diversity is a free series of programs coordinated by Derry Township and The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue. Each program targets a specific aspect of diversity and inclusion. The next presentation on November 20 is Navigating the Generations: Creating an Inclusive Community for All Ages. Presented by Lynette Chappell-Williams, Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion for Penn State Health Milton S.
