Choosing the Right Speakers For Celebrating Heritage & Diversity

In our increasingly interconnected world, the appreciation and understanding of diverse people and histories is essential — and not just to tick a box. Honoring diversity improves belonging, improving work culture and the bottom line. Thoughtful events, workshops, and discussion can go a long way to building culture.


While heritage months offer a focused time to reflect on the contributions, struggles, and stories of various communities, the need for diverse voices spans all events and gatherings. 

NAL Speakers Bureau, proudly led by a Black woman, offers voices that not only recount history but inspire futures and enhance event culture universally. 


We’ve created a guide for heritage months below. Want to know more? Send us an email!

Black History Month provides a profound opportunity to delve into the rich narratives of Black individuals who have shaped the nation. Speakers from NAL not only honor these stories but also contextualize them in today’s struggles and triumphs, providing a lens into the resilience and creativity of the Black community. Their voices enrich any event, contributing to a more inclusive and understanding community atmosphere.

These stories are essential in any event seeking to promote a culture of equality and innovation.
