The Leaders of Color Network Program is included in Annual Meeting registration and is open to all LeadingAge members including emerging, mid-level, and senior leaders of color and allies who are registered for the Annual Meeting. Take a look at some of the Leaders of Color Network programming that you will experience.

If you are not yet registered, we invite you to join the Leaders of Color Network in Chicago!

Members of the Leaders of Color Network hold a valuable perspective and we want it represented at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting and Leaders of Color Network Program will provide you with opportunities to hear from thought leaders across our field on key topics such as diversity, equity and inclusion and governance leadership, network with executives and people of color, and to build a community with your colleagues.
