More information coming soon!

During this training, we’ve invited a panel of local leaders who are actively building alliances across differences and working to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations and community. We’ll hear a local perspective on the opportunities and challenges of doing this work in the Rogue Valley. Panelists will reflect on their own personal journeys, as well as what it has been like to translate their learnings to their organizations. This is a great opportunity to hear from other organizational leaders about what diversity, equity and inclusion looks like to them and in real-life practice regionally.
