The inaugural leadership summit, Lift Off: Lead. Connect. Transform., aims to inspire and encourage EDI leaders and practitioners. Lift-Off will motivate its attendees to understand the nuances of leading EDI in their respective spaces; forming new connections and reconnecting with professional networks, and equipping attendees with the skills to transform systems and practices from a model of diversity or equity and inclusion as an isolated initiative to equity and inclusion as a catalyst for institutional and organizational excellence.
