Focus on diversity

Societal blind spots and biases have led to disparities across every industry. In a joint effort part of a growing commitment to dispel these gaps within the retail industry, retailX and Retail TouchPoints are intentionally broadening our speaking faculty. Our goal is to amplify the often overlooked and underrepresented voices of the retail industry. We welcome the speaker submissions of black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) retailers and brands. We also encourage solution providers of racial, gender and ethnic minority to use our platform as an opportunity to garner new business and increase their market share.
