Opening Keynote Speaker – Kim Katrin Milan

Kim is a dynamic community organizer and advocate of equality and inclusion. As a writer, consultant and educator, she helps people build their ability to relate to others -- especially to those who, on the surface, may seem quite different than ourselves.

Her intersectional approach to human rights reframes the golden rule: instead of considering how we want to be treated, “treat others the way they want to be treated”. 

Kim gives people a solid foundation for understanding the experiences of others and acting in allyship. Committed to the issues and inspiring in her approach to solutions, she makes creating large scale change accessible by focusing on small meaningful actions and choices.

Registration opening in early summer
