The Forum will be held April 26-28, 2019 at the Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia. This eighth-annual gathering will offer useful knowledge, engaging dialogue, and practical takeaways to empower participants’ efforts on equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives on their campuses. Sessions will focus on core identities such as race/ethnicity, women/gender equity, LGTBQ, disability sport, and international students.

In addition, to end the first day of programming, the Forum features a special welcome reception Friday, April 26 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Center for Civil and Human Rights, where attendees can explore the fundamental rights of all human beings and leave empowered to join the conversation in their own communities.
