The 2020 Toward One Wisconsin Inclusivity Conference will bring together individuals and organizations from multiple sectors across Wisconsin to address the most persistent barriers to inclusion, what is working, and what is promising on the horizon. We expect a diverse attendance including but not limited to representatives from birth-K-12, higher education, business and industry, state and local workforce development, youth serving programs, health professions, vocational rehabilitation, community and neighborhood associations, non-profit organizations, government, and faith-based groups.

 

We invite presenters to submit proposals that include collaborative and innovative approaches, best practices, cutting edge research, and/or success stories that focus on our four conference tracks:

  • Track I: Increasing Opportunities for Inclusion in Wisconsin’s Workforce
  • Track II: Creating Inclusive Communities in Wisconsin
  • Track III: Cultivating Equity in Education
  • Track IV: Building Health Equity in Wisconsin

 

 Conference sessions are scheduled throughout the day on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28 and 29. Each session is 60 minutes in length.  Interest session rooms hold up to 50 people.  All presenters are required to register for the conference and will receive a reduced registration fee of $100.  Due to the high volume of presentations, presentations with similar topics may be matched with another presentation to fill a 60 minute time slot.

 

Request for proposals will be accepted until November 15, 2019.  Track sessions will be filled on a first service, first come basis.

 

What criteria will be used to select proposals?
Proposals should be timely, carefully considered and prepared, interactive, and provide resources, takeaways, and action points. Reviewers will consider the following criteria when evaluating proposals:

  • Relevance: The proposed session should address one of the Track session topics.
  • Approach: The following should be clear: the session description and objectives; how the session adds value to the conference and serves attendees; who the target audience is; what modes of facilitation the presenters will use; and what takeaways participants can expect.
  • Creativity and innovation: The session should bring to bear a new lens or perspective on its topic by presenting original research, applying personal or theoretical knowledge, and/or demonstrating new models or evidence-based practices.
  • Impact: The session should lend itself to professional or personal application. It should be designed to encourage attendees to contemplate follow-up, continued exploration, and action planning on various levels.
