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.
Yes. For Social Workers, the NASW WI has approved the Summit for 9 Continuing Education Hours for a Regular Summit Ticket. For attendees going to the full first day, as well as an Institute, you will be eligible for 12 Continuing Education Hours.
For attorneys, we will also be submitting an application for CLEs following the conference. If the application is approved, it will be listed on this website. We recommended checking this website in the months following the Summit to see if it has been approved.
There is parking located at Monona Terrace, but it frequently fills up for an event this size. We highly recommend biking, carpooling, or taking the bus if any of those are options for you. The Capitol Square is served by many bus lines, and there is a stop within about a block of the building in multiple directions.
If you will be driving, please see the following link for a Downtown Parking Map, including additional ramps in walking distance to Monona Terrace:
