We are bringing back a much anticipated event in our state, but in a new way, the hybrid format of the HWOA Annual Conference. Whether attending in person, or chiming into the virtual sessions, there is a space for everyone. Join us October 8th. Registration is now open.
Registration is open:
Reset-Reimagining Arkansas's Future: The year 2020 will remain in history as a year that brought about many unthinkable challenges that propelled communities to devise creative alternatives to continue moving on. In 2020 we have seen the worst pandemic that continues ravaging our communities, national elections, and the U.S. decennial Census, all impacted by COVID-19, still Arkansas is moving on. Yet very important questions linger: what is the new normal? How have our communities responses to address a myriad of issues? How do we implement changes in order to continue functioning? Though life will not ever go back to the way it was before, together we must find ways to reset and re-imagine ours and Arkansas's future.
What to expect:
HWOA prioritizes the well-being of their community members. We are working diligently to ensure that we deliver an effective program while taking every safety precaution possible. The hybrid program will offer attendees the opportunity to attend in person, but also provide the option to attend virtually. We will require face mask wear. In the given circumstance that cases are dangerously high as the conference approaches, HWOA will shift their program to a virtual platform only. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Public safety is our priority. In lieu of the current circumstances with rising COVID-19 cases, HWOA has made the executive decision to shift the conference to a completely virtual platform. After registering, attendees will receive an informational email with more details.
The HWOA conference highlights programs, presents research findings, and discusses issues affecting diverse communities in Arkansas. Attendees will include business, community, education, and faith leaders as well as students, parents and policy-makers. The conference will consist of the highlighted central themes discussing relevant issues surrounding women, education, politics and representation, LGBTQ+, and youth initiatives. The program and schedule line-up is coming soon!
