The in-person event will be held at the brand new Pioneer Center at This is the Place Heritage Park; sessions will be live-streamed and made available for later viewing. The other half of our sessions will be pre-recorded and available online. All conference content will be available exclusively to registered attendees for the next year.

Cultural Diversity Competency
We all would like to believe that we are aware of Cultural Diversity Competency (CDC), but what exactly does it stand for? Helen Wong Smith says it’s the ability to function with awareness, knowledge, and interpersonal skill when engaging people of different backgrounds, assumptions, beliefs, values, and behaviors. In this workshop you’ll be challenged to examine personal perceptions that might surprise you and, you’ll be introduced to strategies that will increase your ability to practice inclusion.
