2024 DEI Summit

September 24, 2024

Venue: Renaissance Columbus Downtown

Address: 50 N. Third Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215


The Ohio Chamber of Commerce’s third annual DEI Summit provides a rich and engaging experience to deepen understanding of how to effectively promote inclusion for all Ohio businesses. Participants are invited to learn more about DEI issues, hear from leaders in the DEI space, and network with others who are interested in promoting DEI.

Diversity and inclusion initiatives have become a topic of national debate after the US Supreme Court’s 2023 decision overturning affirmative action programs at universities. This has ignited questions about how to stay the course while mapping a path forward. This year’s Summit focuses on connecting with your Why for DEI (#YDEI) while offering clarity on how to meet at the intersection of workplace culture and compliance and move forward with passion, purpose, and impact.

Please feel free to contact Lindsey Perkins with any questions at (614) 629-0911.
