Parsons added: "Attending the summit will provide me an opportunity to showcase the work the IPC is undertaking to drive social inclusion through Para sport and our new strategic plan which will be published later this year.
"It will also be a chance to learn more about the work of INAS and see some excellent sport once the Games begin."
Also among the speakers at the summit will be Kate Palmer and Lynne Anderson, chief executives of the Australian Sports Commission and Paralympics Australia respectively.
The Summit will be held at the Suncorp Stadium - also known as Lang Park - in Brisbane, with a full programme of events to be published on July 1.
