Calling Thumbtack Diversity, Equity & Inclusion leaders! We’re thrilled to partner on your very-first Level Up DEI Summit.

Over the past year, everyone has experienced a seismic shift in their lives. From the impacts of COVID-19 to long-standing racial injustice, the fault lines in our society have driven us from shock to fear to a resounding desire for change.

On Wednesday, December 9th, from 11 AM - 5 PM PST, you’re invited to an interactive summit when we’ll finally bid adieu to 2020 and create an action plan for the year to come.

We’re bringing you a packed agenda with fireside chats featuring prominent DEI thought leaders, breakout sessions, panels with Thumbtack leaders, and plenty of time to share, collaborate, and inspire one another.

The first hour of the event will be open to all employees before we close to only Diversity, Equity & Inclusion leaders.

Topics will include:

  • Creating a roadmap for Thumbtack in 2021
  • How to engage and inspire your remote teams
  • Making a business impact as Diversity, Equity & Inclusion leaders
  • And more to come…

Thumbtack, it’s time for us to LEVEL UP.
