Having worked in human resources for more than two decades, Wolckenhauer knows the importance of an engaged workforce.

In one respect, it means encouraging an environment that is clear, firm and diligent around accepting every individual, irrespective of everything ranging from age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and a variety of other qualities.
