WAEE Winter Workshop

January 19-21, 2018

Treehaven, Tomahawk, WI

EnCOMPASSing: Progress, Perspectives, and Possibilities in EE

  • Progress: How are leaders advancing their organizations and the field of EE?
  • Perspectives: How can we expand our understanding of the nature, people, and society around us to be more diverse and inclusive?
  • Possibilities: How can we deepen our capacity to engage and inspire learners through hands-on ideas, resources, and collaboration?

New this year, we have embedded a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Short Course into the weekend. Say “yes” to this in your registration if you want to spend the weekend immersed in these topics. The Short Course is designed such that you will attend sessions only in this track for the entire Winter Workshop. See below for course details.

This year’s Keynote Speaker is August Marie Ball, founder of Cream City Conservation. After a decade of working in the environmental field, August, a woman of color, and citizen of the world, noticed a theme: Lack of representation of people of color in leadership positions and a lack of knowledge on how to address the existing organizational culture which led to such homogeneity in the first place. August helps schools and environmental organizations address land stewardship needs through the creation of equitable green career pipelines.
