Alliance Annual Summit - May 2021 Wrap Up 

We did it! Nearly 160 people gathered virtually for our Summit from May 17 – 20 this year. With the intention and inspiration of resiliency, we dove deep into topics like generational trauma, tools for organizational resiliency, the voluntary services model for vulnerable youth who experience trafficking, how to have hard conversations in a supervisor role, and DEI visions for an Oregon that fights oppression and racial disparities.

The total number of attendees was an impressive 160, totaling 240 hours of training provided. Total CEU certificates was 52 totaling 78 hours of training provided. We also had stellar feedback! Of those whom took the poll, the feedback from the poll was at 98% extremely and very satisfied with 100% saying yes they’d recommend the summit. Thanks to so many who made it possible. We are grateful.

Our esteemed presenters took us to the depths of subject matter more than we have ever imagined. Each presenter brought forth an expertise and fortitude that lived up to our Summit theme of resiliency. Implementing real change means creating a sense of community which can be challenging in a virtual format. But our presenters shone through, sharing their wisdom shared with the community.

Our generous sponsors made this event possible. The sponsor list includes: Oregon Department of Human Services, Stoel Rives, Comagine, Cascadia, Care Oregon, Bridgeway Recovery Services, JD Fulwiler & Company Insurance, Oregon Health Authority, GOBHI, 501(c) Agencies Trust, and Allcare Health. This event would not be possible without them. They are partners who’s values align with our
mission and we are so grateful for their generosity.

We also want to thank all the attendees of Summit 2021. We had engaging conversations within all the sessions and can’t wait to see you in-person next year!
