Project Equality

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 on the road to full inclusion, but even more importantly, what strategies will make equality and access a reality for all.

Project Equality unites individuals and organizations committed to equality, access, fairness, and opportunity through action, advocacy, economic power, and education by:

  • Serving as a resource to all diversity minded organizations to increase their diversity proficiency
  • Measuring organizational effectiveness relative to diversity inclusion within their specific workplace, workforce, marketplace and community
  • Bringing together all diverse organizations to have one voice regarding diversity proficiency and effectiveness
  • Promoting diversity inclusion business cases as well as diversity inclusion and personal financial literacy
