The Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance Summit on Race and Inclusion leads the way in advancing understanding around issues related to race and ethnicity within our region. Since 2001, more than 6,000 individuals state-wide have been impacted by the Summit. Described as aspirational and inspirational by attendees, the Summit explores what we as individuals and institutions can do to create inclusive, diverse, thriving communities.

On May 15, 2018, nationally-recognized diversity and racial equity leaders will gather at Hope College in Holland, MI to share best practices and strategies for Advancing Equity.

We invite you to partner with LEDA to invest in a stronger West Michigan.
