The Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP) and the Urban League of Greater Madison (ULGM) are pleased to announce that National Urban League President & CEO Marc Morial will keynote the 7th Annual Madison Region Economic Development & Diversity Summit, being held virtually October 22 and 23. As in previous years, the event will feature renowned national and regional speakers, programming and networking opportunities with a focus on why embracing diversity and inclusion is integral to equitable economic development in the Madison Region.
“We look forward to once again convening the region’s premiere businesses and other community leaders to continue pushing forward workforce diversity and economic inclusion initiatives that can make our region a model of opportunity for all,” said ULGM President & CEO Dr. Ruben Anthony.
MadREP President Paul Jadin echoed Dr. Anthony’s enthusiasm. “I’ve known Marc since our days as mayors and couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him, virtually, to the Madison Region. This is an important moment in history as our society grapples with a global pandemic and a reckoning on racial justice. I can’t think of a better person to keynote our 2020 Summit than Marc Morial.”
