If you have an idea for a workshop or plenary, please submit your ideas for our program ASAP using the form below. Session ideas that meet the following guidelines will be given priority:• Include relevant topics, and/or speak to EARN's core principles;• Include a discussion of how race and gender impact each issue; • Include recommendations for a panel that includes racial, gender, and geographic diversity;• Workshops are 75 minutes long. Be realistic about how much content you can effectively discuss in that time. Panels with more than 3 presenters are discouraged. • Highlight the work of multiple state-based EARN partners.
Note: We would like all sessions to have at least one EARN state group panelist. If you’re at a national group or believe that a national partner has the deepest knowledge on a particular issue, try to find an EARN state partner who has dealt firsthand with this issue at the state level, or is planning to do so. If you do not know of such a group, we can help try to find someone.
