Spring Networking Social + How to Make Things Better with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

March 22 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Lindsay Wrege 321 Coffee Speaks at Raleigh Public Relations Society

In this talk, Lindsay Wrege invites you to challenge cultural norms, specifically in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. You will discover how true change comes from the actions of practicing the better. If you want to make things better, make better things. This event will take place at the Lake Johnson Waterfront Center at 4601 Avent Ferry Road. Breakfast, and coffee, will be provided!

Wrege is the co-founder and CEO of 321 Coffee, a coffee shop and roaster in Raleigh that employs individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Her inclusive staff, featuring people with down syndrome, autism, and other neurodiversity, together are modeling inclusion for other companies to follow.

321 Coffee is a coffee shop and roaster focusing on workforce inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Located in Raleigh, the company currently employs over 30 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). 321 baristas do it all: roasting the coffee, taking the orders, making the lattes. Together they are demonstrating the value of an inclusive business model. Launched in 2017, the company is on a mission to change the statistic that 80% of adults with disabilities are unemployed.
