U.S. Congressman Steven Horsford (D-NV-04), Joins Equity Summit 2023 as a Featured Speaker

We’re excited to share that U.S. Congressman Steven Horsford (D-NV-04), Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, is confirmed as a speaker at Equity Summit 2023. Congressman Horsford will join us for a fireside chat, adding his valuable insights to this important event focusing on economic equity and workforce justice.

Representative Horsford is a proven champion for Nevada’s working families. In the 118th Congress, he is committed to crushing the coronavirus, getting Nevada’s economy back on track, and restoring public faith in American institutions. He has worked to strengthen children, families and communities because these are priorities for so many Nevadans. For more than a decade, Rep. Horsford led the Culinary Training Academy, the largest job training program in Nevada, helping thousands of workers find quality careers in the hospitality industry. An unique partnership between labor and business, the Culinary Training Academy under Rep. Horsford’s leadership placed over 80 percent of graduates into good paying jobs and completed a multi-million capital construction campaign.

Rep. Horsford made history as Nevada’s first African-American State Senate Majority Leader and he delivered. While previously representing Nevadans in our nation’s capital, Rep. Horsford worked to ensure veterans, seniors citizens, and all Nevadans received the benefits they deserved, authored and passed the Nevada Lands Bill to create jobs across the state, and fought to protect a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions. Most recently a small business owner, in partnership with Intel, Horsford worked to bring the first of its kind workforce development program for youth and young adults to North Las Vegas. He brings a principled focus on job creation, community development and skills development to Congress.

Having Representative Horsford at the Equity Summit 2023 presents a valuable opportunity for all of us to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities in our pursuit of equity.
