    Join the IFA Foundation as we discuss the basics of getting into the Franchising world. We will discuss the many opportunities open to people of color, underrepresented communities, women, veterans, and more. Many companies are eager to identify, recruit, support, and advance a more diverse pipeline of talent throughout their brands. The IFA Foundation is there to both help Franchisors in these efforts as well as assist prospective Franchisees in exploring the pathways that are open to them. This will be a lively open discussion with lots of time for questions and interaction from the audience, so bring your questions!
