The Equity and Diversity Conference is an annual event hosted by the Division of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA), at the University of North Texas. The conference brings together hundreds of students, educators, and professionals who are committed to equity, access, and inclusion in higher education, but is also open to any community members interested in diversity and inclusion topics.

Each year the conference is keynoted by a speaker with relevant knowledge, skills, and experience related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and/or social justice. Past speakers have included Annette Gordon-Reed, Jeff Chang, Bakari Sellers, Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, Dr. Derald Wing Sue, Hill Harper, and Soledad O’Brien.

UNT Together: Turning Towards Inclusive Excellence

The 2023 Equity and Diversity Conference presented by Goldman Sachs is themed UNT Together: Turning Towards Inclusion. This event serves as a platform for exceptional practitioners to share their work and further discuss topics relevant to some of the priorities that your institutions and departments care most about, including race, social justice, neurodiversity, health inequities, gender and sexuality, activism, religion and spirituality, sustaining long-term progress, shifting from a programmatic to a strategic focus, and more.

We are currently working on the full 2023 agenda, so stay tuned for more information!
