It is my privilege to welcome you to the 2021 Regional Economic Inclusion Summit. This year’s theme is “More Than a Moment.” The Summit will include in-person Pre-Summit activities, as well as the full-day virtual summit on October 13, and conclude with an in-person Post-Summit 10th Anniversary Celebration that evening.
Building on the success of our 2019 summit featuring former Senior Advisor to the President of the United States, Valerie Jarrett, our annual event will include some amazing speakers. In addition, leading professionals will spearhead insightful talks and panel sessions as well as training workshops. These sessions/workshops will focus on a variety of topics and industries as we examine what is needed and what is next for advancing workplace inclusion.
The annual REI Summit continues to be the largest DEI convening in the Pittsburgh region; with over 300 in attendance in 2019, we expect significant growth in virtual attendance after the return of the event and the 2020 pandemic hiatus.
This year’s Summit has it all in one place: premier educational opportunities, advocacy, and knowledge-sharing. I invite all companies, professionals, and stakeholders committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion to attend and participate. See you there!
