DEI Summit 2022 Summary:

The Greater Topeka Partnership and GO Topeka hosted its annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit on Sept. 27, 2022 with nearly 200 people in attendance! This year’s event was held at Prairie Band Casino & Resort, and it kicked off with a special opening ceremony curated by the Prairie Band Cultural Department. Following the introduction, speakers took the stage, an ally panel was held, and participants took part in multiple breakout sessions. Keynote speakers included Kenston Henderson, Sr., of Live With Lyfe LLC, and Christopher Szamosszegi, a tribal member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and an LGBTQ business owner. Ayesha Simmons, director of supplier diversity for Colgate-Palmolive, also shed light on how to improve diversity in your business’ supplier pool. All things considered, it was a great day of education and connection.
