Full Summit

Categories: HR Event

Due to an overwhelming response, registration for all events of the 2018 ROI Summit have closed. We will not take late registrations or walk-ins at this event. Thank you!

Convening 250 executives, HR professionals, civic and nonprofit leaders and over 100 regional organizations committed to promoting diversity and inclusion, Summit workshops include addressing generational diversity in the workplace, cultivating an inclusive environment, practical strategies for HR professionals, and more. The 6th biannual conference, presented by TAHRA, brings together professionals from across the city and state to address the critical issues of inclusion and diversity in the workplace.

We have grown over the years and are expecting a record number of participants from for profit and nonprofit organizations. Our esteemed keynote speaker is Joe Gerstandt, a strong advocate in the diversity and inclusion conversation. In addition, we will offer panels and workshops led by other local and national leaders in organizational diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives.
