    In acknowledgement of six years of work through the city’s Diversity Advantage Initiative, the City of Bellevue presents the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit, Friday, Jan. 8, 1-4 p.m. New sessions have been added due to overwhelming demand.  

    To register and see more details on the virtual summit sessions, visit the city’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit web page. There is no cost to attend this event.

    The summit aims to create a virtual space for participants to come together to reflect, have dialogue and take collective action toward creating a more equitable community for all. The summit will explore the history, progress and vision of the city's diversity, equity and inclusion work, and the work of others in our communities to promote equity.

    During the summit, the city will share lessons learned and explore the important work that remains. As part of this collective work, the summit will include three breakout sessions to learn, share and re-envision together a more equitable future for all. Peers and partners in government, nonprofits, education and business are invited to join in the discussion on topics of racial equity, accountability and skills building for driving a more inclusive and equitable culture in the community.
