Are You Registered For Upcoming MSCI’s Upcoming FREE Events?

While the coronavirus pandemic has kept industrial metals industry colleagues from meeting in person, the Metals Service Center Institute is working to develop engaging, online contents for its members.

These events are all online and can be accessed by members no matter where they are in the world.

Upcoming events include:

  • November 5, 11 a.m. CT, Free Webinar: MSCI will host a conversation about the value of being a diverse organization with Brigadier General (Ret.) Rebecca Halstead, a faculty member with Thayer Leadership, and the first woman to be promoted to General Officer. Halstead will share her powerful and effective views on diversity and the lessons she learned from her experience as the first ever female Commanding General at the strategic level of leadership in Iraq, where she led 20,000 soldiers and 5,000 civilians from 2005 to 2006. This was a first for the Army and the nation. During her career, Gen. Halstead was often the only woman in the room. She believes organizations are better because of their diversity, not in spite of it. Registration for this event is here.
