DEI Solutions is a series of regional events in the framework of the preparation to the second edition of Global Inclusion Online Forum, set to take place on April, 14. Diversity, equity and inclusion have very different local context from country to country, region to region. Therefore, we decided to inject more regional context into our global initiative.

Aiming to save our attendees’ time while ensuring the highest practical value, we decided to build our content exclusively from case studies, the main reason why people attend online conferences. There will be no generic talks or hypothetical conclusions. Only concrete examples and proven solutions.

Best regional speakers will be offered to speak at the main edition of the Global Inclusion Online Forum on May 20–27, 2021.
