Due to increased COVID-19 cases, Oct. 12-13 conference to be presented virtually
In the interest of public health and in accordance with updated CDC guidelines relative to travel and large, in-person gatherings, Toward One Wisconsin 2021, a conference on equity, diversity and inclusion, will take place as a fully virtual conference.
Although previously planned as a hybrid event with virtual options and sessions based in Eau Claire, Wis., Toward One Wisconsin’s planners are prioritizing the health and safety of participants and community members.
The conference will still feature 48 breakout sessions and three nationally acclaimed keynote speakers (Kao Kalia Yang, Dasha Kelly Hamilton, and Jelani Cobb). Attendees can look forward to an opening plenary panel, closing “move to action” session, as well as inspirational poems and reflections from our artist-in-residence, Dorothy Chan.
Last year’s conference successfully brought together more than 800 people in a fully virtual format to address and prioritize the work of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout Wisconsin. We look forward to continuing this important work again this year.
