Opening Session | DEI in Associations: Improving Your Impact, Sharon Newport, CAE

Association executives are dedicated stewards who invest greatly in the success of their team and their association. For many, DEI is new and likely evokes new emotions as you travel in your journey. It’s important to normalize and evolve your understanding of the journey. We will explore some of the key frameworks, terminology, and questions that will help you improve your experiences and your impact every day. 

  • Clarify what inspires you towards improving your impact in DEI
  • Affirm the importance of leadership, support, and accountability
  • Learn the role of awareness and mindset
  • Explore promising practices for associations engaging in a holistic DEI transformation
