Learning Lab: Championing 4 Change with Skokie Park District

Learning Lab: Championing 4 Change with Skokie Park District
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has taken center stage, and organizations across the nation are taking a hard look at how to create more meaningful change for employees and members of their community. Whether it’s creating a new DEI Committee, updating the agency’s mission and vision statements, diversifying the continuum of services offered to the community, or broadening board and staff training, it is important to identify a starting point and be intentional moving forward. Featuring Jon Marquardt and Oralethea Davenport, this fireside chat will highlight the Skokie Park District as the first recipient of IPRA’s new Champions for Change Award and discuss the District’s unique and exemplary practices of increasing access and fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion within their organization and community. Come join your colleagues for an inspiring lesson and learn how this Illinois leader has come to accurately mirror its community and become a hub for DEI.
