Outreach & Event Participation Request

To assist us in serving your needs and effectively represent the Commission on Equity and Inclusion, we ask that you complete this form as part of any invitation for our team to speak at or participate in any event.

Requests will be reviewed and evaluated for feasibility. Events should be aligned with the mission and vision of CEI, as well as the work done by BEP. Not all speaking engagements and event participation requests will be approved.
