Founder's Welcome

Dennis Kennedy, Founder, Pittsburgh Diversity Conference


It is my privilege to welcome you to the National Diversity & Leadership Conference. This year's theme is "Re-Thinking Diversity & Inclusion" continues to prove to be imperative in today's global economy. Many organizations understand the value of having a diverse workforce, but more can still be done. The need to bring cultural change into a business model and take the action in creating an environment of "one organization fits all", calls for collective efforts.

The purpose of this one day conference is to give participants an opportunity to share the tools necessary to build a diverse talent pool that can accomplish organizational goals. It is a time to network and take their leadership skills to a higher level. The National Diversity & Leadership Conference is a chance to learn what it takes to make it on the road to diversity. Our speakers and various panel sessions will bring their unique knowledge and skills to help promote a culture of inclusion.

I want to thank our sponsors who have seen the value in our National Diversity & Leadership Conference and continue to provide financial support to keep us going. Please take note of our sponsors and support them when possible. Second, I want to say "Thank You" to our speakers who have made a commitment to be here for this conference. Many have traveled in order to participate and I greatly appreciate their support. Finally, I would like to thank the organizers of the conference for a job well done.


Dennis Kennedy

Founder & CEO,
