DEI Leaders Connect

The purpose of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Leaders Connect group is to bring together DEI leaders in the Dallas region to discuss multifaceted DEI challenges and opportunities with a focus towards action.

This group is designed to provide a space for discussion of relevant topics DEI leaders are facing, sharing of knowledge and resources, cross-company collaboration on events and efforts, and mentorship of newer DEI leaders.
