2024 Speaker Series
DO THE RIGHT THING

As planning, design, and community development professionals, most of us chose our professions because we want to “Do the Right Thing.” But when you're working to solve complicated, multi-faceted challenges like climate change, the housing crisis, and structural inequities, with many stakeholders and limited resources and power, determining what that right thing is can be hard to define. And once defined, it can be even harder to implement. By bringing together diverse perspectives from various disciplines, industries, and backgrounds, this Speaker Series will explore this notion of what it means to "do the right thing," how there isn't one right answer, and how we can use these ideas to connect to a sense of purpose, challenge the norm, and collectively work towards a common goal.

All sessions will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Please check in prior to 9:30 a.m. Join us for networking after each session from 11:30 to Noon

West Sacramento Community Center, 1075 West Capitol Avenue, West Sacramento Free parking at 1271 West Capitol Avenue (behind Walgreens)

We hope you can join us in person, but we will have a Live Streaming option for all sessions at the same price as attending in person.
