Inclusive Communities to Present at 2019 APPA Training Institute
In partnership with the Nebraska Administrative Office of the Courts and Probation, Inclusive Communities (www.inclusive-communities.org) has been invited to present at the 2019 Training Institute for the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA). The conference will take place August 18–22 in San Francisco, CA.
The Training Institute provides an interactive learning experience for professionals involved in the community corrections, juvenile justice, and treatment professions across the United States and several other countries. Through workshops, intensive sessions, guest speakers, and Resource Expo, the Training Institute provides knowledge and tools to help shape the future of community corrections by meeting the needs of today’s professionals.
Inclusive Communities and the Nebraska Administrative Office of the Courts and Probation will conduct an interactive workshop entitled “Creating Inclusive Communities: Honoring the Diversity Between Each Other and Preparing for Interactions with Those We Work With,” in which participants will reflect on the diversity around their identities, intersections, and cultures. The presentation will begin to prepare agencies for interactions with the diverse identities of staff, clientele, and stakeholders, recognizing that change starts with the individual.
The Nebraska Administrative Office of the Courts and Probation partnered with Inclusive Communities of Omaha to launch a branch-wide Inclusive Communities Initiative in 2017. Presenters will share how this initiative has been forging creative partnerships, training capacity, and communities of practice to create an inclusive organization.
Inclusive Communities envisions a society that is strengthened by diversity, inclusion, respect, and justice for all people. Visit www.inclusive-communities.org or call (402) 391-4460 to learn more.
