The FORUM

Creating space to dialogue learn mobilize change

FORUM is an annual conference centered on addressing issues of racial equity through connecting professionals across sectors to topical experts. At FORUM we elevate issues of inequity in healthcare, government, education, business, and nonprofits with the mission of equipping practitioners with the knowledge and tools to advocate for and address racial justice in their respective workplaces as well as the community at large.
