The Playbook for the Pushback
DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) practitioners are navigating changing attitudes toward “social justice” initiatives. This waning support has led to various challenges and targeted attacks on educational curricula, hiring policies, and programming related to racial justice and LGTBQ+ inclusion. It is paramount that practitioners, corporations and organizations be prepared for this pushback. Creighton University’s Division of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and The Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce are pleased to bring you “The Playbook for the Pushback." This add-on option can only be added to a participant's registration (sponsor, group or individual ticket purchases). You must purchase a ticket to The Conference to attend this session.
Reservations are due Thursday, Oct. 12 at 11:59 p.m. No refunds or cancellations will be granted after this date.
All attendees must be registered using their primary email address to ensure each individual receives access to the mobile app and conference communications.
