About the Conference

“Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Real Impact for the Real World” is the volunteer management conference presented by AL!VE, Better Impact, and VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada).  Our current streaming event will consist of four 20 minute presentations, followed by a moderated discussion with the other presenters (think Ted talk meets late night tv), including responding to questions from the audience.

This unique event will broadcast live on two separate days, October 19 and 20, 2021. You may register for the day and time zone that works best for your local group, once registration is available later this year.

The broadcast will be streamed live to more than 50 remote locations in the United States and Canada, with the likelihood of an audience of 1000 or more. One of the goals of this event is to provide quality, high level professional development events in local areas where access and resources may be limited to local associations of volunteer engagement professionals, volunteer centers, or other entities with an interest in professional development for those who engage volunteers.

How does it work?

Same as before, your local group pays a connection fee and arranges for a location (with a screen, speakers, and space for an audience, meals and a local facilitator to guide local discussion). You can charge your local attendees whatever price you choose. It could be a free event, or charge a fee you determine per person and make some profit for your local network.
