Founder's Welcome

Dennis Kennedy, Founder, Philadelphia Diversity Conference


It is my privilege to welcome you to the 6th Annual Philadelphia Diversity & Leadership Conference. This year's theme is Imagine Inclusion! In today's global economy, a growing number of organizations have become fully aware of the value of diversity as a business imperative. To ensure their competitive advantage, however, organizations must shift from awareness to action by bringing about culture change and promoting environments of inclusion.

The purpose of this two day conference is to give you an opportunity to explore tools and resources to transform diversity awareness into actionable results - and equip yourself with essential skills to contribute to your organization's goals. I encourage you to network and share your knowledge with others. Our speakers and various panel sessions will offer a unique perspective on what it takes to make it on the diversity journey.

I want to thank our sponsors who see the value in our Philadelphia Diversity & Leadership Conference and continue to provide financial support to keep us going. Please take note of our sponsors and support them when possible. I also want to acknowledge our speakers who have made a commitment to be here. Many have traveled long distances in order to participate and I greatly appreciate their support. Finally, I would like to thank the conference organizers and volunteers who worked diligently to bring you a top-notch conference.


Dennis Kennedy

Founder & CEO,
