Including Inclusion

Speaker: Lydie Gutfield

Director, Parks and Recreation, City of San Bernardino 

Dynamic shifts in perception of programming and services for the community are happening as individuals begin to better understand the “I” in DEI. Develop some basic how-tos for high-quality inclusion staff training, culture change, and recruitment.

By developing a framework of open discussion, your agency can begin to enhance, elevate, and define the next best practice for providing positive recreational opportunities for all.
