The Learning Institute’s 10th Annual Global Well-Being Conference will focus on using the social justice advocacy theoretical approach to enhance our global connectedness as we navigate an evolving world. Global connectedness ensures our awareness of the wider world, sense of our own role as a world citizen, respect and value for diversity, and engagement in  intergroup dialogue and cultural humility. With the interconnected and interdependent nature of our world, the global is not ‘out there’; it is part of our everyday lives, as we are linked to others in our own country and on every continent. As individuals and as leaders in larger organizations, how can we foster global connectedness to achieve a sustainable world?

This year’s conference, Global Connectedness: Achieving Sustainable Change in an Evolving World  invites presentations (paper, roundtable, and workshop) that explore the realization of social justice and human rights and its myriad dimensions and manifestations.  Our conference welcomes research that identifies barriers to social justice and human rights, as well as strategies (policies, programs, and practices) to promote social justice and human rights across diverse populations.  These presentations may be original research, theoretical framework(s), clinical interventions, pedagogy, and/or policy/advocacy.  Human rights are complex and multifaceted; strategies to enhance it require equally complex and interdisciplinary responses.  Scholars, practitioners, students, and agents of social change from all disciplines are encouraged to submit proposals.
