The second United Diversity Business Summit will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.

This year’s theme is “Enhancing the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem through Diversity, Community and Innovation.”

The summit will feature keynote speakers, breakout sessions, business opportunity exchange, networking opportunities and resources for the business community, according to organizers.

“Presentations are targeted toward businesses with well-developed diversity and inclusion programs and those without current efforts but who want to engage,” stated a release announcing the event.

“This summit brings us closer to our aim of a diverse business community where everyone’s ideas can flourish,” said Dr. Velma Trayham,  CEO of Thinkzilla Consulting.

“My hope is that this summit empowers attendees to share valuable resources and best practices in DEI and leadership with their organizations, coworkers, managers and senior leaders.”

Speakers for the 2022 summit include Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega; Dr. Jackie Johnson, diversity director for Scottsdale; Rob Millar, Scottsdale’s economic development director; Art Hamilton, founder of the Art Hamilton Group; and Danny Seiden, president and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, among others.
