Continuing the legacy and mission of Pearl S. Buck by bridging cultures and changing lives through intercultural education.
2023 Empowering Equity Conference
**Updated Information & Dates**
Due to an overwhelming response, Pearl S. Buck International will be postponing the Empowering Equity Conference previously scheduled for Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 as we redesign it into a fully virtual 5-part workshop series.
This expanded format will still feature speakers and workshop leaders in the fields of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Law Enforcement, Human Resources, and Healthcare. By offering this event online, we can accommodate a wider, more diverse national audience, which will enhance the experience for all participants.
The rescheduled Empowering Equity Conference will be offered as virtual half-day offerings starting Wednesday, February 22, 2023 through Wednesday, March 22, 2023 from 1–4 pm EST.
Join us for this cross-cultural educational event! Over the course of five half-day virtual workshops, learn how your business, organization, or non-profit can engage more thoughtfully and effectively with staff, clients, and the community in an increasingly global and intercultural society.
The United States is in the midst of a demographic shift in the workplace. With a more diverse workforce and customer-base, intercultural competency and comprehensive diversity, equity, and inclusion programs are essential. These will ensure the success and effective management of organizations and businesses, and they uplift communities.
Presenters will highlight industry best practices, and specialized workshops will detail the application of these for law enforcement, human resources, and health care professionals.
If you already registered for the previously scheduled November 2022 conference, your payment will be refunded.
