Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workforce

The MPACE Conference Programming and Entertainment Committee invites you to submit a presentation for the 2020 MPACE Conference to be held virtually December 9-11. The theme of this year's conference is “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workforce,” and when it was announced at last year’s conference, the organizers could not have foreseen how timely this would be for this year!

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the way we work, learn and play. Additionally, a veil has been shred open and revealed the brutality of racism and injustice. It has uncovered overwhelming disparities in healthcare, economic security, education, criminal justice and much more.  Amidst the current tension there is a demand for systems change to promote a more equitable and just society. 

We are seeking proposals that will provide us fresh perspectives, impactful best practices, and innovative toolkits for career services, university relations and/or campus recruitment that also incorporates the main conference themes. 

Broad tracks include: Career Readiness/Career Development, Big Data/Survey Collection, Recruitment Practices and Employer Engagement Strategies, Marketing & Branding, Professional Development, Student Engagement, and Technology Solutions 

Below are some guidelines to help with your proposal submission. Keep in mind these are only recommendations and you are welcome to propose an idea outside of these recommendations.

Deadline to submit proposal extended to Sunday, November 1, 2020. Click here to view a preview of the questions prior to filling out the submission form.
