Join us as we continue to promote a welcoming community for diverse populations. We believe that Ottawa County will be enriched by building a diverse, inclusive and equitable community; an Ottawa County where everyone belongs.

The 2017 Forum features an array of leaders from different sectors including government, business, community, faith and education. We have expanded our discussion to include challenges facing the LGBTQ community.
