Sponsorship Opportunities

UNT’s annual Equity and Diversity Conference provides your organization an opportunity to interface with up to 600 attendees at the conference, including countless others who view the program online. Our sponsorship packages include a unique opportunity to brand your organization as a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion:

  • The Presenting Sponsorship includes headliner naming rights, integration of your company name into the conference logo, a feature on the Division of Institutional Equity and Diversity’s “Social Justice And Community Engagement” television program, and prime booth placement with additional space at the Equity and Diversity Career Fair. It also includes the privilege of introducing the conference keynote speaker.
  • 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 Social Justice Speaker and associated naming rights.

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 commitments must be submitted by October 31, 2019.
