    As the end of 2020 approaches, we are preparing to say a fond farewell to a not-so-fond year. While 2020 has been filled with turmoil and uncertainty, we can take pride in the unparalleled COLLABORATION that has grown between national, international, state, and local organizations. We look forward to strengthening these relationships even more in 2021, and beyond.

    As we move forward TOGETHER in the “new normal,” leadership and strategic human resource skills will be more vital and necessary than ever. Carefully selected and curated content in this virtual conference is designed to help you build these skills so you can guide your teams not only through the pandemic, but to thrive during and long after it has receded.

    The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement is committed to helping you strengthen your talents and build partnerships. JOIN US as we celebrate collaboration and help you, leaders in our field, continue to work together to maximize impact. 

    Here are just a few of the sessions being offered:

    • Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Hiring Philosophy and Practices
    • Collaboration: Understand, Align, and Transform
    • Practicing Compassionate Badassery: How to Cope with COVID-19
    • Technology to Safely Onboard, Support & Engage Volunteers During and Past COVID
