Madison Region Economic Development & Diversity Summit

Presented by:  Madison Region Economic Partnership & Urban League of Greater Madison
Location:  Monona Terrace Convention Center   (1 John Nolen Dr, Madison, WI 53703)
Time: 8 am - 4 pm


In our fifth year of unparalleled partnership, Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP) and the Urban League of Greater Madison (ULGM) will host a joint event for Madison Region business and community leaders focused on economic development and diversity.

This annual Summit builds on our previous joint events in a collective commitment to advancing talent, opportunity and growth for all the region’s citizens. A topic of vital importance, the convergence of diversity and economic development is a critical component of efforts to mold this region into a model for economic inclusion. We know that diversity spurs economic growth, while homogeneity slows it down. As workforce demographics continue to shift, we recognize that the businesses and communities that embody, embrace, and encourage diversity in all its forms will experience the most gains. It is incumbent upon all of us living and working in the Madison Region to understand the integral relationship between economic growth and diversity, and to act upon the opportunities before us.

The day-long Summit will engage, educate, and empower attendees around issues related to economic, workforce, and community development. The event will feature keynote speakers, break-out sessions, and ample networking opportunities. Participants will represent the entire eight-county Madison Region, with an anticipated audience of 600+ business executives, community leaders, economic development professionals, educators, elected officials, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders.
