The American Association for Access, Equity & Diversity Presents its 48th Annual National Conference -TAKING PLACE OCTOBER 11-13, 2022 ON A VIRTUAL FORMAT

Our theme this year - Building an Infrastructure for Equitable and Sustainable Change: with emerging trends and challenges entering the equal opportunity landscape, let's find ways to build an infrastructure for sustainable and equitable change.


The AAAED Annual National Conference is where association professionals and leaders gather to share resources, strategies, and more. This conference will provide three full days of learning from federal agency heads, workshops and panels, and will conclude with our honorary Awards Ceremony to recognize individuals and organizations that are strong advocates for equity and diversity. 

You’ll uncover new tools and knowledge and leave feeling inspired to take on the opportunities and challenges that you face in the equal opportunity industry – all on a virtual platform, from the comfort of your own home. So join us this October to champion a shift in thinking toward equitable and sustainable change!
