Neon Entertainment understands the importance of having a diverse and inclusive roster of talent, including speakers dedicated to creating inclusive and supportive communities. Our speakers discuss important topics including discrimination of race, gender, sexual orientation, and many other related discussions.
We seek to promote the individual right of self-identification and expression and to encourage conversations that welcome perspectives from a diverse group of individuals. Due to our artist’s diverse backgrounds and experiences, it allows for the exchange of ideas that are benefited from multiple backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and viewpoints.
Check out three of our diversity and inclusion programs for your next speaker series:
