This virtual summit was created to transform well-intentioned conversation into real action and meaningful change. We aim to do this by bringing together voices from all genres, genders, and geographies for what many of our speakers are already calling the world's most ambitious conversation about diversity.

This Free Virtual Summit Brought Together More Than 200 Experts Across Multiple Industries and Backgrounds ...

  • Diverse Perspectives. Rather than listening to pointless panels where everyone says the same thing, all of our sessions involve speakers from multiple points of view.
  • Focused On Action. Dialogue is important, but in this summit we will go beyond the conversation and make sure every session offers some concrete action steps.
  • No Type-Casting. There is no "box-checking" or tokenism at this event. Every speaker is invited based on their accomplishments and never stereotyped or invited solely based on their race, gender or disability.
  • Ambitious "Non-Obvious" Conversations. We will ask big questions and explore world-changing ideas with a focus on bringing together insights you haven't heard before.

Who Is This Event For?

This summit is for anyone tired of talking about the problem and willing to be part of imagining the solution to create a more inclusive world.

In the past year, the conversation around DEI issues reached a long overdue tipping point. In 2021 we have the chance to transform this momentum into action. This summit was the first step in helping us go beyond evangelizing why diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging matters, to taking concrete steps to make it happen. We aim to do this through an unwavering focus on making sure every conversation has actionable takeaways, as well as publishing a co-authored book with the most powerful and useful insights from all the speakers at the summit.
