My Conference experience...
Review the ticket prices and options below.
The Overcoming Racism 2021 Conference aims to respond to our times in a way that reflects concern for the health and safety of conference attendees as a virtual event. As heartbreaking as that is to us who have found previous Overcoming Racism conferences to be viral in terms of information exchange, learning and relationship-building, we wish to keep our physical viral exchange to a minimum. And as it turns out, a virtual conference allows for even more voices, more learning and more relationship-building.
Attend both November 12th & 13th
Includes morning plenary and two afternoon workshops each day: $125
Student rate: $45
Attend either November 12th or November 13th
