We are a network of Sun Belt Conference diversity executive leaders. We welcome athletics diversity and inclusion designees and c-suite diversity leaders.  

Beginning April 19, 2023, our 45-minute virtual meetings will be held monthly on Zoom. The access link will be posted to the agenda for that meeting. Immediately following each virtual meeting will be 15 minutes reserved for networking.  

During our convenings, you will have opportunities to build connections while gaining new tools and frameworks, helping us build a more diverse, equitable, inclusive Sun Belt Conference consortium. The 2023 meeting dates and times can be found below.
