YP Summit Promise

For those in motion, it’s about change – about bending space and slicing time. It’s about professionalism and perspective. It’s about activating curiosity and cultivating community growth. It’s about everyone. It’s about you.

Our promise is to provide an inclusive experience that will foster your personal and professional development. We will challenge the way you think, provide you with new tools and inspire you to put them into action.

Over the course of the day, through change-making keynote speakers and empowering breakout sessions, we will celebrate differences, foster connections, grow inclusivity and initiate positive, community-enhancing change – all with the goal of bringing a new layer of vibrancy to our community.
