CONNECTED, WE THRIVE

Let’s focus on connection – specifically the human connections that underpin our work and everyday lives.

We’re looking for enthusiastic and compelling speakers from diverse backgrounds and identities to present reimagined perspectives to the topic at Congress 2021.

We especially welcome content that challenges all of us to break down oppressive systems and practices within our sector.

Once again, we will be gathering together virtually for Congress from November 22 – 24 to reflect, share with, and learn from one another.

In 2021, Congress will focus on the theme of human connections that have a major impact on our work and everyday lives, and that will be at the core of building back better together. Connections as a core component of our work. Connections to make our sector and operations more inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible. Connections with ourselves, our employees and our employers. Connections with community stakeholders and external partners that expand impact.

Think you’ve got what our colleagues need to hear? Excited to share your knowledge, passion, ideas and expertise with your fellow fundraisers? Submit your proposal by Sunday, May 9, 2021, and let’s start connecting.

Submit your proposal here.
