About this event

Summit Summary

Since the death of George Floyd, communities across this country continue working towards a new level of diversity, equity, and inclusion, however the workable strategies to do with work remain under daily construction. The Equity and Inclusion Summit was created to help promote productive strategies and discussions that are working in communities across this region.

Our expert panel of presenters will introduce you to their experiences and efforts during this two-day summit. Our topics will explore how we can create inclusive communities, exploring the language barriers that exist as we navigate life's processes, to how we tolerate diversity in our own lives. Join us as brilliant and diverse minds discuss and unpack the pressing issues of our cultural differences and how we embrace them and celebrate diversity.
