About The Conference:
Each year, the Embracing Our Changing Community conference brings together a variety of presenters, service providers, professionals, educators, community organizers, students and more to learn about diversity, equity, and inclusion issues. During the past 14 years, this event has addressed many diversity-related topics including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic divides, gender, culture, sexuality, abilities/disabilities, religion, and more.
We live in a complex and globalized society in which intercultural interaction is a necessity. We find diversity all around us in many forms; this half-day event will explore new and positive strategies that can be applied with the purpose of creating an inclusive community where everyone feels welcome, valued and equipped to thrive.
Our focus for this year’s conference–The Intersectionality of Privilege, Power, Responsibility, and Belonging–will help you better understand privilege and the responsibilities that come with it. How can you use your privilege to advocate for the marginalized and underserved communities? Our goal is to highlight the relationship between privilege and power, and how this in turn impacts the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
