Stakeholders Breakfast

Each December, our annual Stakeholders Breakfast joins over 800 community leaders. This year’s event concludes CBI’s landmark 20th Anniversary year. The stories of people across our community who are working to increase equity in a variety of systems were showcased through compelling videos and the breakfast was a chance for all to start to consider how we can WAKE UP, INTERRUPT, and STEP UP about issues of equity in our community.

 

The Stakeholders Breakfast is CBI’s largest community event each year. Our thanks to all of the people who joined us and our special gratitude to the sponsors that make this important event possible.
