About: Beyond Diversity Summit

About the Organizers:

We believe the world needs more non-obvious thinkers.

This event was organized and sponsored by the Non-Obvious Company in partnership with Jennifer Brown Consulting. Our mission is to help leaders, organizations and curious minds learn the habits that allow them to see what others miss and shape the future. We do this through our bestselling books, actionable keynotes, signature workshops, annual book awards and the popular Non-Obvious Insights Show, hosted by our founder Rohit Bhargava and produced by Chhavi Arya.

Through this ambitious event, we were proud to have the support of a select group of organizing partners who each brought their unique vision, expertise and insights to help us put together an even more diverse conversation about diversity.

We are deeply grateful for all of their support, assistance, excitement and friendship. Not only are all of them helping to make this conversation better, but they are all instrumental in making sure the outcomes from this event and our Beyond Diversity book help us all to drive real change and inspire actual action.
