The Intersection of the Global Pandemic and Cultural Responsiveness
9:30 — 11:00 am Wednesday, Nov. 18
As of late, a number of unprecedented events, i.e. climate change, COVID-19, and civil rest, have made an indelible impression on our socio-economic, cultural, and healthcare business practices. Our cities and counties are experiencing global, community and individual shifts in culture and beliefs. County leaders are now faced with the challenge of providing culturally competent services to their diverse communities impacted by these events. Now more than ever, county leadership requires self-study, integrated development and an implementation skill that produces a sense of movement, eases tensions, and establishes true understanding of matters with which even the leaders themselves may be grappling with. This workshop will equip county leaders with the tools required to bridge communities, foster relationships across boundaries, and create consensus amongst diverse groups.
Lobbying During Coronavirus – Challenges, Tips, and Tales for Advocating in 2021

No handshakes or elevator pitches? Testifying on TV? Join our expert panel to learn the positives – and the pitfalls – of strong advocacy to ensure your county “zooms” to the forefront of the 2021 policy and fiscal agenda.
California County Roundtable
1:00 — 2:30 pm Wednesday, Nov.18
What’s Going On in Your County?
That’s the question at the heart of the “California County Roundtable,” a workshop featuring county supervisors talking with each other about what’s important right now. In a year where counties have faced historic challenges, understanding each other and comparing solutions and responses is more important than ever. After supervisors give three-minute presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to talk in-depth about the subjects that were raised and make connections with what’s going on in their own counties.
