Lens of Equity

Summit Event

Attendance for the Lens of Equity Summit is open to the public. Pre-registration is required.

Thursday, May 18, 2023 at Clover Park Technical College’s McGavick Conference Center

The Lens of Equity Initiative began in 2021 with the Lens of Equity Mini-Series, which focused on the four components of an equitable organization: People, Policy, Practice, and Promotion. The series covered how promoting DEAI (diversity, equity, access, and inclusion) in an organization can serve the community, how we can increase access, and how we can keep a DEAI lens at the forefront of what we do.

To continue this work, the Task Force is planning the Lens of Equity Summit, a full-day event on Thursday, May 18, 2023 at the McGavick Conference Center that will provide tangible tools and information to organizations so they can move forward and build healthy DEAI frameworks. Featuring keynote speakers, workshops, and resources, the summit will show how organizations, businesses, and individuals in Pierce County can be action-oriented in implementing DEAI work.
