Activities: Participants spend the bulk of their time participating in facilitated discussions designed to build consensus for future action. Meal programs will feature recognized speakers on the topic, as well as other informative presentations.
Scholarships Available: While many diverse individuals are invited, often the fees or time away from work prevents their participation. Scholarship funds can help to alleviate some of those issues. Applicants/recipients may need to share in the attendance cost.
