Event description
Join diversity leaders to engage in collaborative idea-sharing, to seek innovative solutions, and to develop productive relationships.

About this Event

Leading in the “diversity space” is hard. There are scant resources, the constant the need to prove business relevance, and the uphill battle of working to shift embedded practices and company cultures.

Let’s work better together.

Join us as we convene diversity leaders from across the region. This is a gather-to-grow event. Your attendance and participation don’t just make the event better, they make it work.

We’ll be including all 3 tiers of organizational diversity leadership - chief diversity officers, directors/managers of diversity, and ERG/BRG leaders - so that you’ll be able to share challenges and glean knowledge from up and down the organizational hierarchy.

CHIEF DIVERSITY OFFICERS

From the need to constantly legitimize the position within the c-suite, to the challenge of accessing and allocating resources for organization-wide work, the struggles of the Chief Diversity Officer are unique to the position. Join CDOs from around the region to share best-practices, hear what’s working, and develop a network of relational support.

DIVERSITY DIRECTORS / MANAGERS

Directors and Managers of diversity (from supplier to workforce to enrollment to faculty to recruiting) are tasked with “making the work happen,” an enormous ask that comes with significant challenges and institutional barriers. Join leaders from all industries to discuss the realities of practice, policy, and procedure in making diversity “work.”

ERG / BRG / AFFINITY MEMBERS

Often called the “grassroots leaders” of diversity work, ERG/BRG leaders are most often volunteer pied pipers, seeking to lead their peers into affinity and action. The challenges here are clear: getting strong executive support from the “top” and meaningful staff engagement from the “bottom.” Join ERG/BRG leaders for an exploration of leading from the middle.
