Diversity Conference Planning Meeting
Saturday, June 22, 2019 (9am - 4pm US/Eastern)
Maritime Conference Center
692 Maritime Blvd. [map]
Linthicum Heights, MD 21090
One of the long-range goals of "At the Heart of Our Identity: Being Episcopal, Being Inclusive" is to widen the circle and bring more Episcopal schools into the discussion, eventually into a national network. To do so, and to make use of the wisdom and energy that gathered in that one room in Atlanta, this past November, we feel we could use one more session the group that met this past November, in order to plan for ways of making this network of diversity practitioners truly national, reflective of our full membership. In this way, we see this group as the nucleus of a planning and advisory group for us as we move ahead in what we hope to be some very important initiatives.
There is no cost to attend or register for this event. Lunch on the day of the event as well as snacks, coffee, and beverages provided during breaks are included. Attendees are responsible for covering their own travel to and from the workshop as well as any lodging they need. Overnight lodging does include dinner and breakfast.
We have a limited budget to assist with travel expenses as well as the Friday overnight, hopefully ensuring that finances should not be a roadblock to attending this event. Please let us know as early as possible of any request for financial assistance.
