We are pleased to offer the opportunity to hear from three national level speakers during our conference.  The Opening Keynote features Ellie Krug, the author of Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change (2013), Ellie has presented on diversity and inclusion to governmental entities, court systems, Fortune 100 companies, law firms, nonprofits, and colleges/universities on 800+ occasions. A hopeless idealist, Ellie has presented her human inclusivity training, “Gray Area Thinking®” across North America. We are excited to spend the first morning learning from Ellie.  

Then, we will be joined by Betsy Delzer & Antonio Hoye of RISE For the Greater Good. They will host a 2-session seminar on the subject of awareness and racial justice, focusing on Inclusivity and Culture & Compassion.  Attendees will leave with ideas of how to apply practices of compassion that build empathy and resiliency, personally and professionally.
