One of the initiatives our DE&I committee undertakes is – Discuss & Discover Group. The Discuss & Discover Group encourages employees to keep their minds healthy and spend free time in fruitful ways like discovering and learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion. This allows us to understand a new perspective and discuss findings. For May, the group chose “Man’s Search for Meaning” written by Viktor E. Frankl. This profound read led us through an amazing story of survival and revealed how powerful our minds are. This book has left a lasting impression. We invite you to read our learnings from May’s book club.
