Conference sessions will have four focuses: civil rights investigation and training, law and policy, civil and human rights advocacy, and diversity and inclusion.
The 2019 Indiana Civil Rights and Human Rights Conference will bring together community leaders, state and federal agencies, lenders, housing professionals, policymakers, educators, and social service professionals to come together and learn about best practices, emerging issues, and relevant case law that furthers equal opportunity, civil rights, fair housing and diversity & inclusion for all.
The conference plans to include keynote speakers, breakout sessions and draw hundreds of attendees locally and nationally. This year’s event, coinciding with Juneteenth, is a celebration of freedom, advancements in equality, and the fostering of diverse workplaces and communities in which all Hoosiers may thrive. In partnership with several local human relations agencies, and state agencies, the Indiana Civil Rights Commission will host this conference in Indianapolis - a midwestern hub for federal agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the State's Indiana Civil Rights Commission and serves as the crossroads of America.
