Save the Dates!  January 28 - 31, 2021

CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS DUE BY MIDNIGHT MT AUGUST 15, 2020

 

The Adoption Wellness, Advocacy, Knowledge and Experience (AWAKE) Influencer Forum is a collaborative, digital space in which to gather, innovate, share best practices, network, equip and support one another in our common mission and values, personal journeys and organization development. 

 

 

WHY THIS FORUM NOW?

Those who give the most in service to others often receive scant support, encouragement and fresh ideas from those around them. This peer-led forum is an oasis in which you can recharge, refresh and refocus together with like-minded colleagues who face similar challenges, heartbreaks and victories on a daily basis.  Influencers have asked for an event like this. The AWAKE Forum is here to fill the gap. 

 

 

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

This event is for current and aspiring influencers dedicated to truth, transparency and the highest ethical standards in the diverse world of relinquishment, adoption and foster care/aging out. This includes: 

 

Creatives - podcasters, musicians, filmmakers, authors, playwrights, artists

Non-Profit Leaders - Executive Directors, board members, legal and administrative staff

Healers - counselors and therapists, support group facilitators, clergy

Advocates -  elected officials, government employees, professional lobbyists, legislative liaisons

Visionaries  - thought leaders, policy nerds and dreamers seeking to move into roles listed above.
