Are you ready to have lunch and learn AND get your CEUs? The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance is offering Lunch and Learn Sessions for Social Workers and Social Service Professionals. Continuing Education Units will be available after each session. The sessions will begin at 12 p.m. and be held via Zoom. (Zoom link to be sent out within 48 hours of the event.)
For over a decade, the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance has been hosting the bi-annual Consumer and Family Conference, aimed at providing free workshops and sessions for people with brain injury, family members, and loved ones. We have always sought to create an inclusive and empowering environment for all attendees. However, we have received feedback from some community members who expressed discomfort with the term "consumers" being used to refer to individuals with brain injuries and their families.
In response to this valuable feedback, we have decided to rename the conference to better reflect our commitment to inclusivity and respect for everyone involved. We believe that language matters, and we want to ensure that the conference's name aligns with our core values. We value your opinion and invite you to participate in this important decision-making process.
We encourage all members of our community to submit their suggestions and ideas for the new conference name. Please share your submissions with us. Let's work together to find a name that represents the strength, resilience, and unity of our community. The new name will be unveiled at our upcoming Fall conference, where we will continue our journey of support, education, and empowerment for all those affected by brain injury.
Thank you for being a part of this positive change and for helping us shape the future of our conference.
