2019 National Conference

The American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAED) is excited to announce that the 45th National Conference and Annual Meeting is heading to Indianapolis, Indiana in June 2019. "Indy," the state capitol of Indiana, is known for fast cars and blockbuster events and has gained acclaim for a flourishing culinary and brewing scene, sports teams, cultural institutions and cool neighborhoods. It is also the home of Madame C.J. Walker, the first American self-made woman millionaire and the Indianapolis ("500") Motor Speedway. Join AAAED June 11-13, 2019, for our National Conference “Moving Beyond Diversity Towards Equity and Inclusion” in historic Indianapolis.
