This year marks the eighth year of continued partnership between the Madison Region Economic Partnership (MadREP) and the Urban League of Greater Madison (ULGM), hosting a joint event for Madison Region business and community leaders focused on economic development and diversity.

Each year, the Summit builds on previous events in a collective commitment to advancing talent, opportunity, and growth for all the Region’s citizens. Weaving together the important conversations of diversity and economic development, this event reflects the organizations’ shared goal of building this region into a model of economic inclusion.

The two-day virtual Summit will engage, educate, and empower attendees around issues related to economic, workforce, and community development. The event will feature an impressive slate of plenary speakers.

Participants will represent the entire eight-county Madison Region, with an anticipated audience of 1000+ business executives, community leaders, economic development professionals, educators, elected officials, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders.
