Please join us for the 13th Annual Indian Hills Diversity Conference on Friday, March 10, 2017, 9:00AM – 3:30PM on the Indian Hills Community College Main Campus (Ottumwa).
The mission of the conference is to educate attendees about diversity-related topics, including (but not limited to) the areas of education, religion, ethnicity, health, environment, gender/LGBTQ, age, and much more. With the growing importance of understanding diversity, this is a great way to learn more, to network, and to gain different perspectives on many diversity-related issues.
Our keynote speakers this year include Joan Becker (mother of Mark Becker, who shot and killed Aplington-Parkersburg football coach Ed Thomas, who will speak about their family’s story and the US mental health system), and Don Bartletti (former LA times photojournalist who will speak regarding his travels in Central America/Mexico and migration for survival). The conference will also include two 60-minute breakout sessions, where attendees learn about pertinent diversity-related topics offered.
