Request for Proposals: I can relate! Skills, Ideas, and Models for Engaging Differences.
The Relational Practices Task Force of the ABA DR section is seeking proposals for participation in our telesummit in September, 2018.
A telesummit is an on-line conference, a series of speakers, workshops, and panels of experts organized around a specific theme. Our theme is I can relate! Skills, Ideas, and Models for Engaging Differences.
Programs will be offered for about two hours a day for five consecutive days. There will be around 20 programs over the course of the week. Each offering will be 6, 18, or 30 minutes long, offering a rich collection of topics and speakers. Content will appeal to a broad audience: attorneys, law students, ombuds, mediators, facilitators, doctors, business people, and peace builders in other industries.
Registration will start in early July and the fee is expected to be about $25 with generous scholarships for those with financial hardship.
Some programs will be pre-recorded while others will be live. During the week, participants may engage in some live interactive sessions in real time. We will also create a Facebook group for on-going interactions.
