What makes this Inclusion Summit unique?


Our Summit brings together CEOs, presidents, and other C-suite executives who play a unique role in setting the culture of an organization, as well as overseeing key strategic and operational decisions. These leaders strongly influence whether an organization advances strategies to promote equity and belonging for employees and the people they serve.

Attracting & Retaining Talent

LINC was established in 2015 as an independent, nonprofit organization with the goal of creating a regional network to attract and retain talent from diverse backgrounds. Over the past 8 years, LINC has served more than 1,000 job seekers and relocating workers in the greater Lehigh Valley, PA. LINC’s workplace inclusion programs, such as LINC’s DEI Community and this Summit, are an opportunity to highlight and share best practices and approaches that can enhance employers’ efforts to attract and retain a diverse workforce.

Actionable Insights

This is not a sit-back and enjoy-the-panels Summit. While we’ll have an opportunity to hear powerful stories from people impacted by organizations’ longstanding commitment to advancing equity and belonging, the majority of the Summit will be spent around tables in workshop-style breakout sessions.

Breakout sessions led by expert Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion practitioners provide an opportunity to reflect and identify opportunities for action. Breakout sessions include topics such as:

  • Fostering a culture of inclusion & belonging
  • Inclusive hiring
  • Foundations for equity & belonging
  • Deepening & sustaining a commitment to inclusion

We look forward to your participation. Like LINC, the strength of regional employers is built on strategic networks, connections, and collaboration. Thank you for joining us in this important discussion.

All tickets are non-refundable.
