    The many faces of Diversity

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is at the forefront of many conversations in all aspects of our lives, it is literally a conversation happening all around us. Diversity, equity, and inclusion can have different definitions for different people. During this keynote, we will develop a basic understanding of DEI, how it affects us as individuals, and how it impacts us as professionals in our respective roles of power and privilege.

    10:30 – 11:15 Vendor Hall & Networking (Gymnasium)

    11:15 – 12:15 Education session – Tracy Crawford (Auditorium)

    Where are you In the DEI Process?

    Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are essential for the health and well-being of communities. In addition, DEI programming and training assist with providing a rounded, more inclusive culture for employees and the communities they serve. Determining where to start with DEI initiatives within your agency can be challenging. This session will help you determine where you are in the DEI process and provide some examples of where you could start.

    12:15 – 1:30 Lunch and Networking (Auditorium/Gym/Lobby)

    1:00 – 1:30 Last Call Vendor Hall & Networking (Auditorium/Gym)

    1:30 – 2:00 Rotating hot topics sessions (2 groups rotate through 2 sessions) 

    2:00 – 2:30 

    2:30 – 3:30 Education Session/EndNote – Lisa Drenna MERGE Consulting (Auditorium)

    Yes, Children with Behavioral Challenges Can Successfully Belong

    Being disability inclusive takes intentional work to ensure that ALL are successful. But…. we recognize some children may present as more challenging and may require a different mindset and strategies to set them up for successful participation in your recreation program. Let’s break it down with best practices you can embrace that follow positive support techniques, allowing us to strip the label of “behavior kid”, letting their gifts and talents shine to become a valued member of your community who BELONGS. From working with families and tips for an effective intake process, to staff training and strategies on dealing with challenging behaviors, attendees will leave with the tools and confidence to reduce (or even better ELIMINATE) suspension practices within your recreation programs.

    3:30 – 4:00 Final Remarks
