Cincinnati at Full Speed Ahead
Welcome to our newsletter! It’s almost unbelievable that we are more than halfway through the year. A lot of things are happening in Cincinnati at a very fast pace. We have had a great first half which we concluded on a high note with our Executive Perspective event, just a few blocks and days away from the All Star Game. For those of you with us that night, you can surely remember what a great time we had, how many doors were opened, and how many connections were made. For those of you who couldn’t be with us, I will only say it was another All Star night in the same week.
As we look into the second half of the year, we have a lot to look forward to, and we hope you do too. We have several very relevant, impactful events planned, and we are looking forward to seeing you step up, being a Leader, and making your mark in helping build a more diverse and welcoming region. Please make sure you look at our website to get the latest updates on these.
We, and our key partners like the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce and the "Diverse by Design" team, are looking for an unconventional type of leadership which will help shift paradigms, break molds, think outside the box, and truly unleash each other’s potential.
There is a lot happening in the Queen City these days, and we will continue to be front and center. The question is: will you?
