We at ACOD know that we are STRONGER TOGETHER. And that’s why we need you.

Our signature event honors people who understand that we are STRONGER TOGETHER. It also brings top executives and community leaders together in their shared commitment to the mission of the American Conference on Diversity (ACOD). Let’s have this year continue that tradition virtually. Over the years, this event has become one of NJ’s premier events celebrating the journeys of individuals, corporations, and organizations building a more inclusive and just society.

Your investment in this event allows ACOD to expand its programs, including their Lead for Diversity Institute; a year-long, life-changing program that, since 1995, has had more than 3,300 participating high-school graduates. Lead for Diversity Institute provides leadership-development and human-relations training empowering youth to stand up against hate, educate their peers, and be better prepared to enter today’s workplace.

According to Suzy Domenick, Chair of the Board of Trustees, “Building on a growing awareness of our society’s inequality and injustice, it is more important than ever to amplify your commitment to empowering individuals and institutions to address issues of bias and discrimination – advocating for meaningful social change in our communities.”

This is one evening you don’t want to miss. That’s why we made it virtual this year!
