23rd Annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference

Building Bridges and Creating Cultures Where Everyone Belongs
JUNE 04 - 05, 2019 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT AT THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE | BROOKLYN, NY

June 04 - 05, 2019

About the Conference

Over the past year, we have seen a significant increase in employee and customer concern over issues of immigration, race, gender expression, and faith. Organizations that do not address these issues risk losing great talent, cultivating toxic work environments, compromising performance, and potentially damaging the brand’s value. In order to succeed, organizations must build bridges constructively and respectfully, creating cultures where everyone feels they can contribute and belong.

For the first time ever, the 23rd Annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference is being held in Brooklyn. It’s a fitting location to examine the latest trends and insights for building bridges within organizations.
