Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summit

7th Annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summit


We’ve experienced highly impactful global, national, and local events that have interrupted our day-to-day functions and in the process drawn attention to the deep cracks in our social fabric. With our growing local population, people of varied cultures, experiences, and backgrounds are calling Idaho home. Fear and misunderstanding are pervasive and now more than ever in our communities we must learn how to discuss differences productively and find mutuality. The need for connection and inclusive communities, requires we take action.

Join us Tuesday, Oct 19th and Wednesday, Oct. 20th at our seventh annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summit Unite Idaho! Celebrating Differences and Building Belonging. Over the two half-days, you will engage in crucial conversations anchored in growth, deepen your understanding of how diversity, equity, and inclusion lifts us all, and walk away with tools and strategies that can be implemented wherever each of us is.

What You’ll Get:

  • Shared understanding of the urgency for DEI progress in Idaho and how this works lifts us all
  • New connections and deepened relationships that sustain progress beyond the summit
  • Tools to implement DEI wherever you are

The Platform: Hopin is an all-in-one live online events platform where attendees can learn, interact, and connect with people from anywhere in the world. It mirrors the in-person event experience almost exactly, more sustainably, accessible, and safely.

Dates: This year we will be moving to a two-half-day experience

  • Tuesday, October 19, 2021
  • Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Registration: Registration opens Monday, August 16th, 2021. The first 200 registered individuals will receive a care package specially curated by the DEI Summit Planning Committee.
