MIP's Courage-In-Conversations is an opportunity for students, professionals and business leaders to engage in dynamic discussions about race, ethnicity, diversity, equity, and inclusion. During the discussion, guests and community members are encouraged to express their views openly and truthfully, rather than defensively or with the purpose of laying blame. Integral to the conversations is an openness to learn.


The Nonprofit Equity Summit is a half-day conference designed to discuss the needs, obstacles, benefits, and opportunities for nonprofits to become diverse, inclusive, and equitable. Join leaders from the nonprofit community to share insights and ideas for a better social sector.
