Call for Proposals

Call for Proposals

UPDATE: DEADLINE EXTENDED!

We’ve extended the deadline to submit a proposal to Friday, July 19.

The 2020 Call for Proposals (CFP) for our 32nd Annual Forum on Workplace Inclusion runs from May 30, 2019 to July 19, 2019. Use this page to review our CFP Guidelines & Polices, CFP key dates, and submit your proposal.

What is The Call for Proposals (CFP)?

The Call for Proposals – or CFP for short – is the process we use to collect presentations to be considered for our annual conference. This year’s conference is called: Facing Forward.

Why are submissions called proposals and not presentations?

Through the CFP process, we also offer the opportunity to submit proposals to be part of our online webinar series and our Podcast series, in addition to our annual conference. A person using our CFP process can submit a proposal for one, two, or all three of our offerings (1. annual conference, 2. online webinar series, and 3. Podcast series).

The 2020 Conference: Facing Forward

When: March 10 – 12, 2020
Where: Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, MN

 

Learning Pillars

New Perspectives – Evolving our pasts to inform the future

  • In an attempt to expand the narrative, how do we honor the history of our individual and collective experiences and invite new perspectives with the goal of moving forward together to inform the future?

Future Fluency – Knowledge to stay relevant and keep pace with rapid change

  • What must we do to be knowledgeable about the future and keep pace with change so our inclusion solutions are not outdated by the time we implement them?

Universal Innovation – Better solutions to meet expanding diversity, equity, and inclusion needs

  • With multiple dimensions of diversity in mind, how can we bring about innovative solutions to meet universal needs?

Global Citizenship – Whole-world sensibilities and responsibilities

  • How can we ensure our practices and solutions meet local needs while exercising a global sensibility and responsibility?
