Bloomberg Equality Summit


Equality is the single most important ethical issue businesses today need to face head-on. Creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce – to serve an increasingly diverse consumer base – is also vital to the success of virtually every business operating today.

Now or Never: Inclusion in the Age of Disruption

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of a woman’s right to vote and the run-up to the 2020 U.S. presidential election, we are witnessing an unprecedented rollback in freedoms that many Americans have taken for granted. The changing tide affecting everything from women’s reproductive rights, hard-won advances for the LGBTQ community and voter access to the ballot box poses challenges for business leaders committed to diversity and inclusion inside and outside the workplace.  Our theme for 2020 is Now or Never: Inclusion in the Age of Disruption.  Simply put, failure to move boldly at this juncture increases the likelihood that these rollbacks create a new normal for both business and broader society.

With so much at stake, Bloomberg will convene the third-annual Bloomberg Equality Summit. This preeminent forum for corporate executives and thought leaders, anchored in a full-day conference, will foster forward-looking conversations and spotlight influential leaders who are paving the way to advance equality.
