Equity Conversations

Periodically, Partners in Diversity hosts small gatherings where diversity influences from our member organizations can engage in healthy discourses on issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion and race. These are typically more informal and features open dialogue and opportunities for participants to interact with each other.

Past topics include internalized racism, appropriation vs appreciation, privilege in a pandemic, microaggressions and more.

Sponsorship for this event is available to all members. If you’re interested in sponsoring Equity Conversations, contact us at
