Events 4 Equity

The Events 4 Equity Calendar features diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) related events of interest to the Greater Des Moines region. Events featured on the calendar are informational, educational, or informative in nature or are addressing equity within our region. This calendar was created by input from Capital Crossroads leadership and the Social Capital, who have been and continue to be an integral part of diversity, equity, and inclusion related work in the community.   To build a more equitable and inclusive region, Social Capital created the 4 Equity tool to focus on and start having conversations around racial equity. View or download the tool for use in your business or organization.

To submit an event for consideration on the calendar, see the “Submit an Event” button below. If you have any questions regarding the events or calendar, please contact Emily Kessinger.
