Thinking and Talking Equity at Equity Summit 2018


(Ikem Opara) #1

If like me you missed being present at PolicyLink’s Equity Summit 2018 that ran from April 11th - 13th in Chicago, Illinois. The theme for the summit was Our Power. Our Future. Our Nation. The summit was likely the biggest single collection of people who are thinking, doing, and shaping policy, discussion and discourse on Equity and Inclusion as it impacts every level of the United States. Technology to the rescue, all the plenaries were recorded and I have shared them below. It is an opportunity for us to experience or re-experience the keynotes that set the tone for the conversations and exchanges over the summit.


What are your thoughts on the conversations at the summit?
What connections do you see with the work you are doing in your communities and areas of influence?
How are practice and policy, politics and power showing up in your work?
