Project Equality’s Diversity and Inclusion Summit brings together leaders in the civic, educational, financial, governmental, health, corporate and legal communities to discuss where we are in 2016 on the road to full inclusion, but even more importantly, what strategies will make equality and access a reality for all. The summit has a focus on forward-thinking initiatives which encourage awareness and open dialogue for all attendees.
