Now a major national business summit, DiversityBusiness.com first annual summit was held in Fairfield University in Connecticut during 2001. The summit has a history of bringing together entrepreneurs, corporate supplier diversity and procurement executives, chief diversity officers, diversity and inclusion and hr practitioners, government agencies and college/university practice-based participants with an interest in the issues of multicultural business and community. The summit examines the concept of entrepreneurship and multiculturalism as a positive aspect of a global world and globalized society. Diversity is in many ways reflective of our present world order. Diversity as a mode of social existence can be projected in ways that deepen the range of human experience. The summit will seek to explore the full range of what diversity means and explore modes of diversity in real-life situations of living/working together in community.

The summit supports a move away from simple affirmations that ‘diversity is good’ to a much more account of the effects and uses of diversity on differently situated communities in the context of our current epoch of globalization. The summit looks at the realities of diversity today, critically as well as optimistically and strategically. The summit will be a place for speaking about diversity, and in ways that range from the ‘big picture’ and the theoretical, to the very practical and everyday realities of diversity in organizations, communities and civic life. The annual national summit is a participants’ event, including numerous parallel sessions. Summit attendees have benefited from the numerous networking and educational sessions. The summit also has a special focus on forging long term relationships for businesses and major corporations. Attendee’s have reported millions of dollars in contract awards from attendance at the summit.
