Sponsorship Opportunities

2019 Conference LogoUNT’s annual Equity and Diversity Conference provides your organization an opportunity to interface with up to 500 attendees, including UNT students, higher education professionals, corporate partners, and community leaders. This year’s sponsorship packages include a unique opportunity to brand your organization as a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Presenting Sponsorship integrates your company name into the conference logo and features your organization on the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity’s “Social Justice And Community Engagement” television program. The Inclusive Excellence Sponsorship gives the gift of supporting a UNT department or college who has demonstrated a commitment to institutionalizing equity and inclusion through its policies, programs practices and people. The Social Justice Sponsorship includes introduction of the conference’s most recent addition to its programming of the Social Justice Speaker.

This year as an added benefit to all our sponsorship packages, we provide customized learning and development programs on various diversity, equity and inclusion topics to help your organization achieve its strategic goals. We hope these unique services provided by UNT will help to catalyze and expand your own diversity and inclusion strategy.

A full list and description of our sponsorship packages follows, and we look forward to discussing the best fit for your needs. Sponsor commitment form and logos must be submitted by January 18, 2019.
