The 2019 Hampton Roads Leadership Summit is an interactive workshop designed for leaders who want to remove structural barriers that keep systems and institutions from being equitable, diverse, and inclusive.
The workshop builds on efforts across Hampton Roads to develop greater awareness about inequities in our region and ways to address them. In the tight labor market, it is increasingly important for organizations to attract and retain diverse talent and provide a healthy work environment for all people. Organizations that are equitable and inclusive will have a competitive edge.
