DIVERSITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GO HAND-IN-HAND.
This event is the place to talk about it and take action.
This annual Summit builds on our previous two joint events in a collective commitment to advancing talent, opportunity and growth for all the region’s citizens. As we weave together the important conversations of diversity and economic development, we seek to mold this region into a model for economic inclusion.
We know that diversity spurs economic growth, while homogeneity slows it down. Thriving regions across the country -- those that we typically think of as top-tier - have embodied, embraced, and encouraged diversity in all its forms. The Madison Region is poised to become one of those top-tier regions if we act upon the opportunities before us.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Hundreds of participants representing the entire eight-county Madison Region will be in attendance. This will include business executives, HR professionals and hiring managers, community leaders, economic development professionals, educators, elected officials, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders.
