Founder's Welcome

Dennis Kennedy


It is my privilege to welcome you to the inaugural Diversity Officer Conference. Diversity has always been a passion of mine, as everyday I see people working hard to transform their workplaces and communities to places where all people are included and valued. Because of this, I decided to start this conference. The conference will take place from October 23-27, 2023.

Companies that are able to use Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to advance their business are able to retain diverse talent, create trust in their brand, and lead in creativity and innovation. For this reason, many of the world’s leading companies have Diversity Officers oversee and implement their DEI strategy.

Yet, Chief Diversity Officers often face near insurmountable challenges. They are tasked with developing a DEI strategy, aligning DEI and business goals, and institutionalizing DEI practices and initiatives across the organization. The goal of this conference is to equip Diversity Officers with the knowledge, tools, and resources necessary to achieve these outcomes successfully.

I welcome you to the Diversity Officer Conference, where we provide spaces to exchange knowledge and tailored solutions and training, and ensure bottom line success.
