Organizing partner


HRATV is a proud organizing partner of the 9th annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit. We are in the process of applying for SHRM and HRCI CE credits.

What to Expect?

We are returning to an in-person event, hosted at JUMP! in Boise, ID and shifting to a 2-hour workshop-style format. Over two days, you will engage in activities that strengthen your foundation of cultural humility and awareness, leave with tangible frameworks, strategies, and resources, and deepen your community of professionals committed to fostering a sense of mattering and belonging.

Join us to become empowered, educated, and equipped agents of change!
