Move your organization forward by being at the forefront of developing an inclusive work environment. As various populations grow, and our nation becomes increasingly diverse, it is imperative for organizations to understand the changing demographics and the impact they will have on your business.

During the inaugural Inclusion & Diversity Summit, speakers and experts from around the region will empower individuals and businesses to commit to inclusion and diversity and leverage our differences as a competitive advantage.

The first of its kind in Oklahoma City, the event kicks off with a keynote by a national speaker, followed by panelists, interactive discussions and local speakers. These experts will share their knowledge, best practices and insights on issues ranging from corporate culture, to supplier diversity, to ROI.

This half-day Summit provides an interactive opportunity to explore fresh ways to lead widespread transformation by collaborating with other inclusion and diversity leaders. Learn how to design inclusion and diversity programs using best practices and discover new strategies to further the mission of incorporating inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
