Frequently Asked Questions about the Racial Justice Summit 2019
This year, we are excited to offer attendees greater flexibility in their conference experience. You will not be signing up in advance for breakout sessions.
Our invitation is to use the information about the breakouts offered to identify the sessions that you would like to attend within each of the breakout time blocks ahead of time, and plan to head directly to them on the days of the conference. Information about the breakout sessions is available on this website, and Summit Registrants will receive a final list of breakout sessions–including the location and room capacity for each session–closer to the Summit.
During each breakout time block session there are between 12-15 options. As there will be limited capacity in the sessions, you may want to identify multiple sessions that interest you within each time block, just in case your first choice reaches capacity. If you find that your first choice session is filled, please head to your second choice session.
A team of volunteers and YWCA staff will be available to guide Summit attendees in this process.
No, you cannot both attend a Deep Dive institute and a Day 2 Breakout. The Deep Dive Institutes are a full day (9am-12pm, 1-3pm) and Institute participants will join the rest of the Summit attendees for the closing Panel with Institute Leaders. Participants who are not attending an Institute on Day 2 will attend one Breakout Session (1pm-3pm) and the closing panel.
No. You should register for the Day 1 ticket and the Deep Dive Institute separately. If you are committing to a Deep Dive Institute on Day 2 you will not be attending a Breakout Session on that day.
