Join Us for a Celebration of I2I’s 8 Years in Community

Join us for DEI in Our Community: The Internet2 Inclusivity Initiative at 8 Years, on Thursday, April 29 from 1-2 p.m. ET.  In the spring of 2013, Internet2 created the Internet2 Gender Diversity Initiative, to focus resources and attention on improving gender diversity in the community of networking professionals who convene regularly to collaborate on the development of national and international advanced networking.

In 2018, the GDI was renamed the Internet2 Inclusivity Initiative (I2) to reflect a wider scope of action and a focus on the cultural shifts the Initiative works to foster. Today, I2I celebrates 8 years by taking a look back and a look forward. I2I co-chair Laurie Burns McRobbie and three recipients of I2I scholarships will give an update and engage in conversation about where we are and where we’re going. Register today!
