2024 DEI PA State Hybrid Summit: Taking Action to End Disparities – May 16

Posted by Community Action Association of PA on April 23, 2024

Join us at the Community Action Association of Pennsylvania’s 2024 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) summit to address pressing issues in our communities so we can Take Action to End Disparities!

In a year where inflation reached 6.41%, the economic landscape has left nearly half of Americans feeling “very stressed” about inflation and financial resources.

It’s crucial to acknowledge that those with limited financial resources bear the brunt of these challenges. Low-income families allocate a higher percentage of their income to necessities like food, housing, and transportation, making them especially vulnerable to price hikes.

By recognizing these disparities and the unique struggles of vulnerable communities, we can take meaningful steps towards reducing economic inequalities. Community Action initiatives are leading the charge in addressing these issues and championing equity.

Moreover, this summit aims to create a deeper understanding of systemic problems underlying economic disparities. By delving into these root causes, we can develop more effective strategies for long-term change.

By participating in this summit, you’ll gain valuable insights from success stories and best practices, empowering you to foster a more inclusive and supportive environment for all. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the solution and drive positive change in our communities. This is a hybrid event! Participation may be in-person or virtual!

Date and Time: Thursday, May 16, 10:00 AM – 3:30 PM (Virtual or In-Person)

Location: Harrisburg University, 326 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101
