It provides guest speakers who have experience, knowledge and skills in social, cultural and diverse subject matter. The conference sessions include presentations, lectures, workshops and panels to inform attendees. Sessions are structured for discussion, personal story sharing and research data relevant to topic themes to enlighten conference attendees about mores, norms and challenges of community members and residents of diverse backgrounds.
