  • 9:00-10:00am: Beyond the Buzzwords with Jacquie Johnson, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities
    • The words to describe work on diversity, equity, and inclusion are always evolving. However, many of the terms are overused and inconsistently understood. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to think about the words we use, the words we are continuously learning, and the words being used to divide. This session aims to go beyond the buzzwords and help participants navigate terminology, learn the history behind these terms, and ultimately discover avenues of mutuality amid a divisive climate.
