In the spring of 2023, a cross-functional review panel selected five teams to receive the Inclusive Impact Innovation Fund (I3) in recognition of their innovative ideas toward inclusive excellence. These projects exemplify the fund’s objectives to generate diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that foster belonging and have the potential to be replicated across the global university system.

We invite the Northeastern University community to join us on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, to celebrate the awardees and their innovative progress. The hybrid event will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (ET) in the Cabral Center of the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute on the Boston Campus.

Presentations will be followed by a Q&A reception featuring poster boards displaying their progress and goals. Light refreshments will be provided. This portion of the event will not be available in a virtual capacity.

The following projects will be showcased at this event: Social Justice Peer Mentorship Program, Transgender Health Equity and Belonging, Inclusive Innovated Start Summit, Future Healthcare Leaders, and Peer Mentorship Inclusion Program for International Students.

We look forward to having you join us in learning more about these innovative projects.
