DEI Leadership Institute Annual Conference

The DEI Leadership Institute was founded on the principles of developing and supporting leaders to grow their skills, knowledge, and hearts to be effective agents of change for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The DEI Leadership Institute Annual Conference is an opportunity for anyone looking to expand their DEI knowledge, connect with others in DEI, grow in their own DEI journey, and make a positive difference in the DEI arena. It’s an opportunity to become an active part of the DEI movement, to learn, to grow, to develop skills, and to make a positive change in your culture, workplace, and community. We aim to create a more conscious, engaged, and active DEI community to cultivate idea sharing and a sense of belonging.
