A: Since we began planning this Conference, the world has changed dramatically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and protests against racial injustice. We have responded by acknowledging that planners have a duty to listen to diverse voices, and learn more about how the systems we work under have negatively impacted marginalized people, and begin to understand how we can change our conversations and actions to create more inclusive and equitable communities. Additionally, we are featuring sessions that showcase diverse lived and professional experiences to elevate their speakers, panelists and messages, are encouraging speakers to consider including diverse voices in their sessions, and Jay Pitter will be joining us as a keynote speaker to address this cultural moment. Future OPPI Conferences will also seek to encourage and incentivise including BIPOC and/or equity-seeking voices, perspectives and worldviews.
