VISIONS’ Spring Summit, April 10

Tickets for VISIONS’ Spring Summit, “Inclusion Illusion: Moving from the Performative to the Transformative,” are now on sale! Early bird discounted tickets are available through April 10.
Join us on May 7th, 11 AM – 6 PM EDT, to learn from a diverse network of community leaders, field experts, advocates, academics, law enforcement, and many more as we discuss strategies to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in a way that truly works to support BIPOC and all communities that suffer from social injustices.
With recent devastating events including the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and the Atlanta spa shootings, there has been an increase in conversations about racial injustice, especially on social media. While many are well-intentioned in social media activism, all too often, supporting BIPOC is reduced into a ‘trend’ that offers very little help to those who struggle with the effects of racism and injustice. 
After learning about how racism is ingrained in our very way of living, how do we put what we’ve learned into practice and make changes in our own workplaces?
We are inviting leaders from all over who are wrestling with these issues as they relate to:Equity and Diversity in Hiring and RetentionPolicy DevelopmentCivil Discourse and Community SafetyEducation, and more!
The purpose of the Inclusion Illusion Summit is to reinforce the importance of making an authentic commitment to racial justice through expert speakers, proven models, and practices.
