Upcoming Conference Keynote in Santa Cruz

Far too often experiential educators claim that they are justice-oriented in their programs, classrooms, facilitation, therapeutic practices, and backcountry field experiences, yet a deeper dive into experiences of people from marginalized intersectional background often proves otherwise. How are we serving and underserving people with various self-perceptions of body positivity, from varying age demographics, cultural backgrounds, races, gender self-identifications & expressions, religious backgrounds, primary language, socioeconomic classes, educational backgrounds, and geographic locations ? How can we integrate consideration of these factors to offer truly transformational experiences to our students, clients, participants, and in our communities of practice? This keynote will experientially explore opportunities to move beyond just talking about these topics to identifying actionable, transformative ways to expand upon our experiential praxes.

Mary's keynote will experientially explore this topic with conference delegates
