On behalf of the Tri-State Conference on Diversity and Inclusion Planning Committee, thank you to all who attended the 7th annual conference on September 20-24, 2021. The conference was better than we could have imagined, filled with inspiring conversations, presentations, and panel discussions.
We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. Our primary goal has always been to harness our collective voices and transform them into an effective tool for action where healing can begin and bring about sustainable change. We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers, facilitators, and panelists provided insight and practical tools of engagement.
Your presence helped make this event a great success, and your enthusiasm and positive energy helped make our time together productive and fun. We wish you all the best and hope that you continue to be engaged throughout the years to come. We’ll see you at the 2022 conference hosted by Marshall University.
