Diversity & Inclusion Calendar

2022 Diversity Calendar

A Diversity and Inclusion Calendar is an invaluable tool for organizations dedicated to enhancing their DEI programs. Organizations are working diligently to implement DEI programs in their workplaces that create a positive work culture and sense of belonging. This helps their team to feel valued, accepted, and respected as they are. Using a DEI calendar regularly that features different diversity days, religious holidays, and heritage and awareness months, educates you on important events related to your team.

Here’s our year-long diversity and inclusion calendar 2024 with a list of multicultural events, DEI events, religious holidays, and heritage months 2024. If a holiday begins the evening before, we will mark it with an asterisk (*) below.

Note: Below is a brief sampling of all of the DEI events in our web-based DEI Calendar. To see all of our events, try a free trial today.
