Our Mission

All proceeds support The Conference Board's educational, scientific, and not-for-profit mission.

Why join the D&I Leadership II Council?

What I love about The Conference Board is I feel like there’s a balance—there are quite a few very senior people who’ve been doing their job for 20 years, there’re newer people who’ve been doing their jobs for a couple years, and there’s a lot of people who are in the middle.

I’m surrounded by other practitioners. It’s nice to talk to people who are sharing similar experiences, who can share best practices. A lot of them have been in their roles for a lot longer, so it’s a good opportunity for me to ask questions and learn from their triumphs. What I’ve found [in other] events I’ve been to, is that a lot of the people who are talking are either more junior than me or don’t have nearly as much experience as I do.
