COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Aflac's Diversity Council hosted a world fair to raise awareness of the importance of celebrating diversity and its role in the company's success.
The destination- and vacation-themed event took place Friday and highlighted various countries, cultures, communications, and cuisines. Liberia, Mexico, and India were among the places that were highlighted.
"Today is our world fair, an opportunity for employees to learn about each other. When people talk about diversity, we like to talk about celebrating the differences in us and understanding each other's cultures. We have food, prizes, and music. You can try on clothes and you can play games. Basically, we're celebrating Diversity Week 2018," said Jo Anne Simms Hill, director of diversity and employee engagement.
The world fair is part of Aflac's week-long celebration of diversity.
