Presented by NSPRA Vice President for Diversity Engagement, Yolanda Stephen, APR

Advancing education for all kids should not be a hard conversation, yet it continues to remain an anomaly in the place where they come to learn and grow. It is easy to have conversations about commonalities, but when that conversation begins to teeter on equity or inclusion it is oftentimes ignored or swept under the rug for any number of reasons.

We can't predict the future, but our recent past has shown us that we can't ignore the environment around us. While some of it is noise that we must decipher, the conversations and cries for a culturally adaptive workplace and socially responsible education is here to stay. How can the communications professional champion an inclusive environment from behind the desk? 

The first hour of this professional development will lean in and provide tips and tricks to help you kick the desk over to bolster a culturally adaptive environment. The second hour we will engage a panel of Indiana educators and school communications professionals to share their experiences, tools and lessons-learned.

Registration is $75 for anyone other than INDSPRA members.
