The Purdue for Life Foundation’s Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Advancement Summit is designed to allow participants to build community, share best practices, and engage in meaningful conversations surrounding alumni engagement, giving, and industry partnerships.

The agenda is focused on “Amplifying Inclusive Advancement,” and we are thrilled to be presenting a fireside chat with Boilermaker Karrah Herring, Indiana’s chief equity, inclusion, and opportunity officer. We will also be hosting a networking fair during lunch and a networking mixer in the evening.

Thank you for your dedication to making Purdue University a place of belonging for all Boilermakers.
