Diversity Dinner

Thursday, November 8th 2018 at Center for Architecture and Design

Who Attends

What a year it has been for the City of Philadelphia! We are Superbowl Champions (GO EAGLES!), we are Amazon HQ2 finalists, and the City’s innovation communities are thriving and growing in record speed. However – despite these strides – there is significant work to be done to make diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices a priority that all Philadelphia businesses embody. If you are interested in this work, you should attend.

Please join us as we reconvene the Philly startup community for the 3rd Annual, PSL and Mogulette hosted, Diversity Dinner. We envision a startup community that is more reflective of the demographics of the city. Come ready to learn, educate, and help us achieve this vision.

What to Expect

Diversity Dinner, an annual event hosted by Philly Startup Leaders and Mogulette, aims to drive the conversation and evolution of diversity, inclusion, and equity in the Philadelphia startup community over delicious food, in good company, and with a focus on listening, learning and collaboration.

Goals for the event:

  • Create strategies for startups and organizations to consider when hiring, building company culture, navigating unconventional ways of thinking, and more.
  • Highlight the progress and work taking place to achieve DEI
  • Establish accountability for Philly leaders to keep DEI top of mind beyond this event
