Welcome to Opal Group’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Executive Summit

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Executive Summit is a face to face gathering of senior level, enterprise executives with expertise in the areas of Diversity, Equity, Equality, Inclusion, Belonging, Culture, Talent, and Human Resources. Our exclusive group of practitioners come together to connect, benchmark, and network through the discussion of key strategies, practices, and ideas related to DE&I. During this unprecedented time in history, it is important to create purposeful connections with like-minded professionals that will lead to the creation of long-term, impactful change in the areas of DE&I. The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit fosters the creation of these relationships.

Our Summit provides a specialized, strategically-built experience that features unparalleled thought leadership sessions, highly interactive discussions, formal and informal networking, and business development opportunities – all in an intimate, exclusive environment.

We believe in creating a memorable, collaborative, and effective experience focused on continuous improvement for Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion, and Talent Management executives.

      Opal Group does a great job of planning and orchestrating fun yet informative HR topics for Heads of HR to come together to share best practices and plans for the future of work. Gianetta Jones

      VP HR, Coca-Cola United

      Well organized and would look forward to participating in a future conference. Mark Rowe

      Fuel50 Inc.

      By far, this was the most engaging, value added convening of leaders. It was the right mix of experience, learning, and networking. I absolutely enjoyed the Disney Tour and the book exchange was brilliant. The roundtables were also an added bonus. Sharahn Monk

      US Market Leader, Learning and Development, Worldpay

      Excellent line-up of speakers. Connie Keys

      Head of Culture & Learning, Campbell Soup

      What I enjoyed most was that the number of attendees was big enough to provide me a wealth of information, but small enough to allow me to network with almost everyone at the conference. I walked away with pages of notes, many new contacts and met some great vendors that we will likely do business with in the future. Shelby Pyatt

      VP, HR & IT, Rayonier
