The Chicago Re-Convening

The last year has tested us in so many ways – we lost friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and heroes to a dreadful pandemic. And we also faced heart wrenching racial inequity, including the murder of George Floyd. How do we honor this cost as we rebuild businesses, lives, economies?

It’s time to build something different to make meaningful change. And we will make strides together on May 27, 2021 in the Virtual Realm. We’re inviting a small group of the smartest and most exciting leaders from utilities, regulatory, suppliers and associations to roll up their sleeves and delve deeply into finding a plan forward to address key challenges of diversity. Then NUDC will commit to encourage the follow up and help our industry take strides toward change.

To keep everyone safe, we’ll be in the Virtual Realm, but we’ll join together with the usual NUDC energy, solutioneering, and fun. Please join us!
