2019 Conference Experience

The socio-political environments in which we live and work around the world are testing our personal values and beliefs. Separate realities and opposing viewpoints often collide making it difficult to identify or address the systemic and polarizing gaps perpetuating obstacles to inclusion. Let’s change that – together. Join us on April 16 – 18, 2019 as DEI leaders and practitioners from around the world convene again for the 31st  annual Forum on Workplace Inclusion as we work to Bridge the Gap.
