Nebraska Welcoming Session 2 on July 19! We’re All In For Language Access

Language access is foundational to creating communities and spaces where everyone feels they belong. We’ve heard from people across the state how important communication is and yet how hard it is. 

For the second session of the annual Nebraska summer welcoming convening we will welcome Brittany Ford! She will share best practices for providing language access at the local level and offer helpful resources. Additionally, she will inform us about who is required to provide language access. Join us to learn more about language access and to connect with welcoming leaders across the state on July 19th starting at 10am CT (9AM MT)! 

Brittany has been immersed in welcoming and inclusion work since she led the nationally recognized initiative Welcome Toledo-Lucas County (TLC) and led the project for Lucas County to become the second county in the U.S. designated Certified Welcoming with strong local inclusion practices. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she served as the Language Access Coordinator for Lucas County’s emergency services and public health departments.  

Brittany is the Client Principal and Co-Owner of Language Equity & Access Partners (LEAP) LLC, a consulting firm founded in 2021 to support language access program design, immigrant and refugee community engagement and strategic planning. 

Be sure to also mark your calendar to join us August 9, 10:00-11:30 am CT (9:00-10:30 am MT) for Session 3: We’re All In for Lived Expertise on Local Boards. 

It’s not too late for friends and co-workers to register! You are welcome to share!
