Our Events Commitment to Inclusive and Equitable Innovation

At CIC, we are committed to being a place of belonging and inclusion for all.

As we endeavor in amplifying inclusivity and equity in the world around us, we believe that we must facilitate innovation and accessibility — not only through our operations, growth services, and workspaces, but also through our events and programming. Here is our Events vision statement on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB):

At CIC, inclusive and equitable innovation is our vision. We believe that the strongest possible innovation community feels welcoming for anyone that enters our spaces and is built on an intentional focus on equity and inclusion. Together with our members and the local community, we build events that give bold, open-minded conversations a home by providing an environment where everyone feels empowered and supported to be their authentic self. We recognize that there is unequal access to entrepreneurial opportunity along lines of race, ethnicity, origin, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability, age, and other aspects of identity — and we commit to supporting event programming that amplifies and prioritizes historically underrepresented voices.

We welcome people from all over the world to host workshops, lectures, meetings, meetups, corporate events, hackathons, networking socials, and more. We’re proud to offer a wide variety of event spaces and services at each of our locations.

Our in-house events team brings experience and care to each event, working with you to ensure that our spaces fit your needs and keeping an eye on all those little details that have a huge impact. Learn more at cic.com/events.
