DEI Leadership Exchange Program

Introducing the DEI Leadership Exchange Program

Launching in 2023, the virtual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Leadership Exchange Program provides an exclusive space for top diversity leaders in the Greater Rochester community to share ideas, skills, and strategies to shape business practices and create meaningful differences in their organizations and community. This unique program creates a meaningful conversation about DEI in today's workforce among top leaders who can implement initiatives.

This program was created based off an impactful framework provided by Buffalo Niagara Partnership which has been successfully running a DEI Leadership Exchange program for the last four years and counting.
