ANCA Peer CONNECTS: DEI Discussion Group

This group is a space for ANCA members and non-members to come together to discuss relevant DEI resources, deepen our DEI learning, find support and inspiration from each other, and make plans for action. The group will gather to discuss a particular theme with opportunities to explore your own topics. The idea is that whatever format works best for you, you’ll have a way to engage! 


Wednesday, January 25 — DEI and your Organizational Structure
10-11am AKT / 11am-12pm PT / 12-1pm MT / 1-2pm CT / 2-3pm ET

So you’re ready to implement DEI into your organizational structure, but not sure where to start? Here we’ll discuss how to cultivate buy-in from your stakeholders and take the next steps so that DEI is an integrated part of all your operations, rather than a siloed initiative. Whether your organization is just starting out or has been on a DEI journey for years, you can come to learn and share with your fellow peers in this Facilitated Discussion.

Wednesday, March 29 — Access for all abilities: Ableism in Nature
10-11am AKT / 11am-12pm PT / 12-1pm MT / 1-2pm CT / 2-3pm ET

Is your nature center accessible? Access to nature is important for everyone, abled and disabled. In this session we’ll discuss the differences in abilities that we should be aware of, and what changes we can make to better accommodate disabled community members. Join us for a Facilitated Discussion with your fellow peers.

Wednesday, May 24 — Land Acknowledgement and DEI Statements
10-11am AKT / 11am-12pm PT / 12-1pm MT / 1-2pm CT / 2-3pm ET

Acknowledgments and statements can be an important measure when paired with action — but such articulations need to be intentional and purposeful. In this session we’ll discuss best practices for crafting a statement and who should be part of the process, as well as how to communicate the statement to stakeholders. We’ll also have time to share resources and statements from our own organizations.
