The A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute Nomination and Selection Committee met earlier this year and reviewed all of the 2007 nominations. They selected Alberici Constructors and the Family Care Health Centers as this year’s recipients because of each firm’s outstanding commitment to respecting diversity in employee recruitment strategies, broad employee volunteerism, and in each company’s business and hiring practices.

Guests will be shown a video presentation and then will participate in The A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute’s newest partnership program with the Missouri History Museum, an interactive experience known as “Reading Bias/Writing Tolerance: Using History’s Powerful Stories.” Trained docents will guide guests on an informative and delightful journey of discovery.
