Following the "2009 Black European Summit: Transatlantic Dialogue on Political Inclusion," which focused on Black and ethnic political participation in Europe and North America, the Transatlantic Minority Political Leadership Conference met on June 1-2, 2010, at the European Parliament. The conference focused on efforts to increase minority representation in the political sphere, including government workforces. Additionally, the conference addressed the impact of the European Union's Racial Equality Directive on the 10th anniversary of its adoption, and the impact of immigration, national security, and anti-discrimination policies on minority populations.

Participants were a select group of minority political leaders and practitioners from the United States and Europe, representing various political parties and ethnic background.
