What people are saying about The Forum

“The Forum is the best diversity and inclusion strategic conference and the only one I attend. There’s an intellectual rigor that’s part of the conversation that I’ve rarely experienced at other events. The attendees are engaged, they want rich dialogue, and they are here to learn.”

“We are on the cusp of transformation with D&I issues. Organizations are beginning to evolve and truly build systems that empower a culture of inclusion. We have to change the conversation, and The Forum addresses the topics that we have to talk about in order to shift the continuum.”

Bring your unique contribution to the BOLD CONVERSATIONS that will lead to inspiring NEW DIRECTIONS

The Forum on Workplace Inclusion convenes in Minneapolis each year to engage people, advance ideas and ignite change around the topics of diversity, inclusion and equity. Celebrating its 28th year in 2016, the three-day conference is designed to be an experience that set itself apart by focusing on big ideas, interactive discussions and lasting connections.
