Government in Public Policy (Summit 2016: Inclusion in Action)

May 17, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC-5

Workshop

5050

What happens when arts organizations orchestrate change by addressing the under representation of people of color in classical music performance?

What happens when governmental entities begin to understand the structures and systems that perpetuate the exclusion of communities of color?

What happens when individuals in cities and neighborhoods across the country are given the tools and training to bridge the gap between what communities envision to be possible and what is actually achieved?

What happens when people of faith connect with other people of faith to grow broader social networks that reach from their neighbors to government officials?

What happens when barriers are removed and inclusion is put into action? Find out at the 2016 Summit on Race and Inclusion when national experts present genuine examples of how intentional change transforms all lives for the better. Presenters will also offer strategies and proven best practices on how you can put inclusion into action by promoting diversity and equity in your organization, neighborhood, community, and beyond.

Sector-Specific Breakout Experts

Summit attendees will hear from sector-specific experts who work hands-on in the areas of business, community, faith, health, education, and government and public policy. Sharing real-life examples and best practices from their field, industry and community leaders will show how every person can put inclusion into action by promoting diversity and equity in organizations, neighborhoods and beyond.
