Keynote Speaker:

​​​​​Tristan Higgins
Founder, Metaclusive LLC; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consultant

Tristan is an internationally recognized speaker on LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion. She is so passionate about diversity and representation that she has stepped away from her 22 years practicing law and started her own speaking and consulting firm – Metaclusive, LLC. The term “metaclusive” means a sense of belonging that transcends diversity and inclusion where all are represented, valued, and accepted. As the definition implies, Metaclusive, LLC focuses on all types of diversity, from the most commonly thought of race and gender, to the often forgotten disability, military service, and communication style.
