Beyond Boundaries: DEI Talks

Stay connected with fellow DEI professionals in Wisconsin and eliminate the wait until the next year’s conference. Join us for “Beyond Boundaries: DEI Talks,” a monthly virtual gathering that offers a space for individuals engaged in or interested in the field of diversity, equity, and inclusion to engage in casual conversations and discussions.

“Beyond Boundaries: DEI Talks” convenes virtually on the last Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. CST. No registration is required, and there is no set agenda! The group collectively determines the conversation topic. These meetings aim to foster informal and relaxed discussions surrounding DEI work. Whether you’re an experienced DEI professional or someone new looking to expand your knowledge, everyone is welcome.

The Toward One Wisconsin Conference began with a mission to foster and sustain a statewide culture that understands that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to the state’s continued excellence. Since the first conference in 2019, T1W has brought together thousands of attendees from diverse backgrounds to have broad ranging conversations around the work of DEI and how to move from talk to action.
