COVID-19 UPDATE

Out of an abundance of caution, the United Front Team has made the decision to offer the upcoming January 27th Keynote event as virtual ONLY to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.

  • During the racial and social unrest throughout our country in the summer of 2020, Fort Wayne Fire Chief Eric Lahey organized a call with Josh Raines of STAR 88.3 Christian Radio station, Iric Headley of Fort Wayne UNITED, and Dr. Pascal Losambe of Synergy Consulting Company, as a meet and greet. The purpose was to explore ways to improve the diversity hiring outreach of the Fort Wayne Fire Department.

  • During that call, a dream was born.

    The original concept was destined to be expanded beyond its initial scope of enhancing the outreach of the fire department into a citywide initiative built by a group of Fort Wayne organizational leaders.

  • Hope, passion, and a desire to see their own community improve in the areas of racial diversity and inclusion drove these leaders to create United Front; an initiative that provides a safe environment for participants to learn a shared humanity, a common language, and philosophy that will change the trajectory of the community for generations to come.
