    The Mid-Atlantic Organizational Behavior Teaching Conference Invitation to Attend the 2022 MOBTC
    "Actualizing DEI in Class: The Opportunity to Make it Happen."Venue- ZOOMSaturday, April 09, 2022, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are important parts of management education.  Our students now expect DEI topics and sensibility in their courses. Our challenge is to design new ways of teaching experientially to support those goals.  MOBTC 2022 will focus on how we actualize DEI in our classes. The program titles follow below.  
    The $10 registration fee includes all conference access, and we will continue our practice of donating the full amount of that fee to Philabundance (a local food pantry). It is another way of doing well by doing good! We hope you agree. To register, email Joe Seltzer at: seltzer@lasalle.edu and give your name, school/professional affiliation, email and answer, "May we include your contact information in our participant list?"
    Payment can be made with your credit card by going to mobtc.org and using our mobile pay app.  If you prefer regular mail and/or a check, make the check payable to "MOBTC 2022," and mail to: Joe Seltzer, MOBTC 2022, 7813 Park Ave., Elkins Park, PA 19027-2615
