Join us for this highly-anticipated event to explore a range of topics, while creating a culture of inclusion and belonging. Atlanta Tech Park is a fantastic place to build community, while engaging in fun and informative discussions. This is why we knew this would be the perfect venue to host our Summit! Come join us at 107 Technology Parkway, in the beautiful city of Norcross, GA!
Diversity and inclusion as a leadership function is vital for professional and personal development. A diverse, inclusive workplace and society doesn’t just happen. Huge demographic shifts are happening that impact our business models and require a new way of conducting business to ensure community prosperity.
As our theme for the Summit is "Understanding Differences, Leveraging Commonalities," this Summit is full-day event filled with inspiration, encouragement, challenges and connections - all presented in an immersive learning environment. Attendees will enrich their lives and businesses by taking advantage of this unique opportunity to hone their skills as authentic, intentional diversity leaders.
We are committed to the charge of diversity & inclusion becoming
the standard to strengthen and impact our communities. As a means to that end, we invite you to consider becoming a Sponsor for this event. Various Sponsorship levels are available. Download our Sponsorship Form to learn more about our Sponsorship packages.
