January 12, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Juan Johnson, president of Diversity Leadership in Action, formerly Juan Johnson Consulting and Facilitation, LLC., will be on campus to share insights on how to navigate through today’s dynamic and highly diverse environment. "I had a chance to get to know Juan when I was nominated to participate as a Fellow in the Riley Diversity Leadership Program at Furman University. Having worked closely with Juan and his team, I am certain that he’ll bring new perspectives to USC Aiken’s discussions about how to create more interconnected and stepped diversity education program that begins during orientation and builds during the students’ tenure at the university," said Dr. Jordan. Mr. Johnson has been in his current role since July 2006, after concluding an extraordinary 21-year career with The Coca-Cola Company. Juan’s original background is accounting and finance. He achieved certifications as both a CPA and CMA and worked for Arthur Andersen & Company before joining Coca-Cola in 1984.

While on campus, Mr. Johnson will meet with members of the college, student life, and orientation leadership to discuss and reflect on the goals and processes associated with creating an inclusive and student-supportive environment.
