Workshop: StoryBuilding – Develop Your Talk
Wednesday, January 24, 2017 | 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m

Salon: Diversity or Empathy
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | 6:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Diversity and inclusion have become the pivot point of many societal conversations from Black Lives Matter to Native rights to gender equality and many more. No one would argue the importance of each of these initiatives or that they have each created long overdue and impactful conversations. However, we ask:
Are diversity and inclusion conversations actually a symptom of a much larger problem… a society lacking in, yet desperately seeking empathy?
