More than an event, "Listen, Learn & Act" is a DEI Call to Action
This virtual experience is an opportunity for attendees to listen as leaders explain the issues that exist in our community and learn how individuals and businesses can influence positive change. It's also an opportunity to develop your own action plan. Come learn ideas for making a difference in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion.
There are numerous voices and organizations working hard to create an equitable and inclusive community here. We look forward to opportunities to engage those leaders in many more conversations with our members.
