10:15 AM – 11:15 AM

Closing General Session

Human Services Learning:  Dreaming of Reformation, Transformation, Abolition, Liberation

 

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Clarice Bailey, Certified Practitioner and Instructor in Conflict Resolution/Peer Mediation and Bridges; Model of Change and Transition

While the concept of diversity and inclusion has been idealized as the way to achieve equity in organizations, the reality is that public and private organizations have fallen woefully short of achieving that goal. So what about organizational culture, practices, and policies that make equal treatment of people an ingrained and unquestionable practice? While changing "hearts and minds" may have been how we formerly framed how we thought to achieve equality, today's efforts require a committed approach to assessing organizational structure, policies, and practices that drive concrete and sustainable actions.

 

Attendees will be invited to

  • Reflect on the current state of diversity, inclusivity, and equity in their organizational settings

  • Consider individual, community, and systemic biases that serve to reinforce structural oppression and disparate treatment of non-white, non-cis-gendered employees

  • Make a critical analysis of their own leadership practices for equity in their workplace
