WHAT IS THE BLOOM INCLUSION SEMINAR?
Bloom Inclusion is an interactive professional development experience combining innovation and inclusion. Each year the design team introduces an innovative and challenging approach to support participant growth in inclusion. We believe inclusion is an ACTION. While some may encourage you to “think outside of the box,” our team encourages leaders to question the “box” itself. Come prepared to be challenged, to learn, to grow, and to BLOOM!

1. Innovation: Bloom applies creative approaches to proven inclusivity methods.
2. Integration: Bloom brings together teams of inclusion leaders from within organizations and connects them with similar leaders within and across peer industries to gain the varying perspectives on effective and proven inclusion best practices and techniques.
3. Inspiration: Bloom participants leave the event empowered with actionable items and new skills to apply in their organizations.
Bloom is described as an “inclusion” seminar. How is that different from a seminar about “diversity and inclusion?”
Diversity refers to the similarities and differences among people. It is the demographic mix. Inclusion refers to an environment where that diversity or demographic mix can maximize its effectiveness. Bloom empowers organizations to foster inclusion so they can reap the full potential of the diversity within their organizations and position themselves to increase and retain diversity that diversity.
