CTA DE&I STATEMENT 

CTA is committed to building a diverse, equal, and inclusive community that encourages, supports, and celebrates the unique contributions of our community members. 

We embrace and encourage our community members’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, background, and other characteristics that make our community exceptional. We foster a safe space to express ideas, seek to deepen our understanding of one another’s perspectives and commit to allyship that equitably serves our community. We have no tolerance for discrimination of any kind. 

This commitment is reinforced in each of our pillars – talent, policy, economic development and community – and we prioritize diverse thought leadership and participation through all of our programs, events, and community-wide initiatives. 

We’re committed to leading by example and being honest about where we can do better to approach this work with the utmost of positive intentions. We do this work even when nobody’s looking, and we hold our community accountable to do the same.

We invite all sponsors, speakers, attendees, volunteers, media, and other participants to help us create a safe and positive event experience for everyone and we hold ourselves accountable for ensuring everyone belongs.
