'Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Real Impact for the Real World' is the volunteer management conference presented by AL!VE, Better Impact, and VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada). Now in its seventh year, this year's topic will explore these important DEI issues impact our volunteers, programs and agencies, now and in the near and far futures. Our current streaming event will consist of four 20 minute presentations, local discussion in smaller groups, followed by a moderated discussion with the other presenters (think Ted talk meets late night tv), including responding to questions from the audience.
The broadcast will be streamed live in the United States and Canada, with the likelihood of an audience of 1000 or more. In order to participate, you will need an internet connection strong enough to handle audio/video streaming and adequate computer or external speakers.
Once you register and we receive payment, we will send you a unique link and the conference handbook a few days before the event. You may register for any time zone that is convenient to you, the content for October 19 or 20 will be the same. Individual registrants will be assigned to small group discussion 'tables' the day of the conference depending on registrations. We will try to assign you to tables depending on your geographic area and/or your affinity group, so please be sure and fill out all the questions to help us assign you to your group.
