    • 30 Oct 2018
    • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
    • Online Webinar

    This webinar is hosted by the National League of Women Voters for members of the League.

    This session will put DEI principles into action to increase the League’s social impact work in communities across the nation. During this webinar, you will learn about State and Local Leagues’ activities that are expanding their reach into more diverse communities. Speakers will discuss the ways individual leaders are overcoming discomfort with communicating across dimensions of difference. This session builds on content offered at the June LWV Convention in Chicago that covered communicating across dimensions of difference through active listening, asking powerful questions, and noticing and mitigating bias.

    LWV encourages member participation in this webinar as a specific League activity in order to share collective ideas and strategies that would be helpful in the near term and in advance of the election cycle. They invite all League members to participate individually or in teams. It is not necessary to have attended the Chicago training to participate in this webinar.

    The discussion will be facilitated by Diversity Dimensions Consulting, LLC—a Washington, D.C. based company that provides effective solutions to individuals and organizations seeking to harness the power of diversity and inclusion. Diversity Dimensions focuses on the intersection of culture, identity, and traditional leadership competencies and customizes strategic solutions to ensure business and career success.

    Did you know there are 9,900 kids in Minnesota foster care and 820 kids waiting for adoption from foster care every day? The need is great. Families of all shapes and sizes can foster and adopt. Could your family be the one kids wait for?

    Join Children's Home, LSS and League of Women Voters - Saint Paul to learn about foster care and foster care adoption. We'll cover the children who wait, the programs, the process and the costs (spoiler: there are practically none).

    Not ready to foster or adopt? We'll also recommend a few ways you can help the kids in care and the families who are opening their homes.
