The 14th annual Idaho Conference on Refugees is back in Boise Feb. 28 to March 1, 2022, and we're accepting your ideas now for workshops.
If you work or have expertise in a subject matter that would be valuable and educational for conference attendees, we want to hear from you.
This year we are focusing our conference on speakers, workshops, and discussions about moving beyond welcoming and into belonging.
Workshops we choose will highlight new ideas to fill gaps in service, best practices to maximize our work, out-of-the-box partnerships, advocacy for refugees and immigrants, and approaches to fighting hate.
The conference has a varied attendance, so workshops in education, healthcare, youth, case management, community building, communications, advocacy, and other topics that build a stronger community and teach best practice are welcome. We are especially looking for workshops that discuss how we can better build inclusivity and equity in our work and in our community.
The deadline to apply to lead a workshop is Dec. 10. Workshops run 1 hour & 15 minutes. Learn more and find application details here.
Thank you to our event partners, Boise State University! We plan to hold the two-day conference at Boise State's Student Union Building, though that is subject to change based on potential Covid conditions in the community.
