The Let's Get Better Together Leadership Track offered in conjunction with the conference is a two-pronged intensive focus targeting agency leaders. Attendees will learn some of the basics of institutional cultural competency and workforce development and will apply what is learned to their respective organizations, create a plan, and commit to follow up after the workshop is complete. Attendees will review and discuss their institutional policies around inclusion, and any information regarding cultural competency plans and committees.The keynote speaker will be LGBT/immigration rights activist Raúl Alcaraz Ochoa and the Rainbow Defense Fund—they do tons of work with LGBT immigrants/asylum seekers in Southern Arizona. There will also be presentations by organizations like La Frontera and the UA Institute for LGBT Studies.
