WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - People came together in West Lafayette Thursday night for an open discussion about diversity.

The West Lafayette Human Relations Commission hosted a town hall forum on the topic.

The commission looks into complaints of discrimination within the city.

It also works to educate the public. That's why the commission held the forum.

There was a panel of people with different backgrounds and experience. They talked about diversity in the workplace and on campus and its impact on economic growth.

"We feel that the economy and diversity is influenced and influences the quality of life, the profitability of a business, the people who come and live here, and the public policy," said Vidhya Iyer, Co-Chair.

The commission has hosted training sessions in the past. They wanted the forum to be another way to touch on education.
