Our Core Values guide our actions.  Here are things we would love all sessions to be guided by:
  • Humility: Sessions encourage discussions, making connections, and reflection.
  • Responsibility: Sessions and presenters promote a growth-mindset and help participants explore and understand the world and their place in it.
  • Respect: Presenters will respect differences and create spaces of non-discrimination.
  • Resilience: Participants are left with hope, optimism, and tangible actions they can take.
  • Empathy: Sessions and presenters value multiple perspectives and viewpoints.
  • Integrity: Presenters have first-hand knowledge of their session topic through lived experience, research, education, and/or certification and are excited to share their learning with participants.
