ANCA Peer CONNECTS: DEI Discussion Group — Land Acknowledgement and DEI Statements

May 24 2023


Time:  10-11am AKT  /  11am-12pm PT  /  12-1pm MT  /  1-2pm CT  /  2-3pm ET

Acknowledgments and statements can be an important measure when paired with action — but such articulations need to be intentional and purposeful. In this session we’ll discuss best practices for crafting a statement and who should be part of the process, as well as how to communicate the statement to stakeholders. We’ll also have time to share resources and statements from our own organizations.

Registration: $10 members, $15 non-members


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Discussion Group
This group is a space for ANCA members and non-members to come together to discuss relevant DEI resources, deepen our DEI learning, find support and inspiration from each other, and make plans for action. The group will gather to discuss a particular theme with opportunities to explore your own topics. The idea is that whatever format works best for you, you’ll have a way to engage!
