Standing Together and Taking Action

The purpose of this event is to bring together individuals and organizations who – by discussing topics that pertain to today’s workforce – will speak to the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how it pertains to and supports the Native American/Indigenous Community in the workplace. The summit’s theme is, Standing Together and Taking Action. The summit will address and educate organizations on their efforts to foster outreach and inclusion of Native American/Indigenous People. This event will serve as a platform for organizations, leaders, and individuals to share their stories, experiences, best practices, and contributions in increasing Native American/Indigenous representation and creating a more equitable and inclusive workplace. Our goal is to educate, inspire, and encourage attendees to reflect on their own commitments and practices as they strive to advance DEI within their respective organizations and beyond. And more than ever, we hope to help companies embrace and champion policies that dismantle a biased system and move towards equity, accessibility, and inclusion in the workplace.
