Enterprise Connect Diversity Partnership
At Enterprise Connect, we believe the enterprise communications/collaboration community has a responsibility to work toward making our industry as diverse as possible. We believe the industry needs to continually expand its talent pipeline to ensure there are opportunities for all as well as a robust emerging generation of aspiring tech professionals.
That’s why Enterprise Connect is proud to partner with The Diversity Org, a 501.3(c) nonprofit dedicated to helping underrepresented and minority students learn about how to obtain high-income and corporate careers. Together with Diversity Org, we will be bringing a group of Orlando-area students to Enterprise Connect on Tuesday, March 28, to help them learn about our industry, meet some of the leaders in our space, and become inspired to pursue careers in IT/communications technology.
We are grateful to those Enterprise Connect stakeholders participating in this programming, thereby demonstrating their commitment to our shared goal of building a more diverse IT/communications tech industry.
If you have any suggestions or questions regarding our Diversity and Inclusion efforts please email: Eric Krapf, Enterprise Connect GM and Program Co-Chair, [email protected].
Women in Communications Program
We believe it’s vital to foster the careers of women in the field of enterprise communications/IT. That’s why we’re committed to offering opportunities for women in the industry to build their knowledge and personal networks via our Conference, Exhibition, and throughout the event through formal and informal networking opportunities.
For the first time ever, we’ll host a General Session on the Enterprise Connect main stage, in which you’ll hear from women leaders in enterprise communications organizations. They’ll address the opportunities, challenges, and experiences they’ve seen, and offer their advice and encouragement for current and future women leaders.
At Enterprise Connect, we firmly believe that IT/communications teams can be among their enterprises’ leaders in improving accessibility for employees with disabilities.
Communications/collaboration technology offers many ways to improve the employee experience for those with disabilities, and we want Enterprise Connect 2023 to inspire you to be a difference-maker within your enterprise when it comes to accessibility.

We’ll also be recognizing innovation in communications technology that enhances accessibility as part of our Best in Enterprise Connect award program.
