Ask-An-Expert Call Series

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Conservation and Recreation on February 3, 2017 at 11am

Engaging in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work can feel overwhelming and scary at times. Although there is no absolute right or wrong way to engage in DEI work, there are some guiding principles that will make your efforts more effective and sustainable.

Join Ava Holliday and Aparna Rajagopal-Durbin, founding partners of Avarna Group, to discuss:

  • Guiding principles for DEI
  • Why DEI is important in conservation and outdoor recreation efforts
  • How to get started on a path toward more equitable, inclusive and diverse advocacy, programming and workplace culture

To register for this conference call, please email the Land Trust Alliance your organization name, participant names, and email addresses. We will send you call-in information. Registration closes on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

Gathering Waters, along with the Land Trust Alliance and Michigan's Heart of the Lakes are pleased to offer a series of free Ask-An-Expert calls that are easy to fit into your busy day.
