Embrace Naperville: Empowering our Mission Through a Year of Learning

Embrace Naperville: Empowering our Mission Through a Year of Learning is a series of events to advance the City’s mission of creating an inclusive community that values diversity. Led by Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Manager Dr. Geneace Williams, in partnership with other community organizations, these events will create a space for storytelling and conversations that foster a sense of belonging. All are welcome to come together for discussions, celebrations, and speakers, exploring how to create equitable access and inclusion across our increasingly diverse community. Join us as we leverage the power of listening and learning to embrace the diversity of our community, embrace equity and embrace each other.
