Bankruptcy IDEA Consortium Speakers Network

The Bankruptcy IDEA Speakers Network is a database of diverse professionals within the bankruptcy industry — locally, regionally and around the country. This tool lists individuals who have identified themselves as insolvency professionals and/or DEIA experts who are available to speak at conferences, workshops and events.

The Speakers Network is an extension of the Bankruptcy IDEA Consortium mission committed to simplifying access to opportunities that increase representation within the ranks of the bankruptcy system with the goal of increasing identities and differences concerning culture, race, ethnicity, gender, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, country of origin and religion. This tool is designed to quickly connect users to a growing database of diverse subject matter experts — who, in turn, will enrich the organization’s audience.
