Our Theme: Who We Are: Taking a Fresh Look at Conflict Resolution in Minnesota
This year we are taking a fresh look at the field of Conflict Resolution in Minnesota. At the conference we will be exploring and redefining the relationship between conflict resolution and equity.  This year’s keynote speaker and first annual practitioner panel will share insights from their unique and diverse perspectives. Workshops will provide opportunities for participants to explore the theme as it relates to their context.

 

About Our Objectives:

  • Explore our abundant diversity of practice and people.
  • Create collaborative relationships to effect equitable interpersonal and systemic change.
  • Reflect on how our personal identities intersect with our professional ethics and bias.

 

About the Keynote: Lissa Jones, Executive Leader, KMOJ Radio and Podcast Host. Lissa hosts “Urban Agenda”, a celebrated Twin Cities forum for dismantling race and racism, for creating community connections and engaging in collaborative problem solving. She is focused on helping organizations to cultivate diverse leadership through modeling and coaching, to strengthen governance as an integral element in meeting mission, and to develop tangible practices for making EQUITY a VERB!

In her words: “Organizational Behavior is a field of study that investigates the impact that individuals, groups and structure have on behavior within an organization. It is the study and application of knowledge about how people act within organizations. It is a human tool for human benefit. 

In my case, at work and on radio, I investigate the impact that beliefs and values held around ‘race’, place, class, identity, orientation, gender, faith, and occupation (vocation) impact the behavior of individuals, groups and structures within organizations.

This is equity: just and fair inclusion into a society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. Unlocking the promise of the nation by unleashing the promise in us all.” Lissa Jones
