“That’s the one thing that I ultimately want to come out of these programs,” she said. “I want somebody’s mind to be provoked to change for the positive, whether it is helping somebody or getting help for themselves.”
In addition to speeches, Benjamin said those who attend will also have an opportunity to interact with the panelists and keynote speaker one on one.
“We’re now going to have a breakout session in the style of world café,” she said. “Each table will have a topic and every 15 minutes, the participants will switch and go to another table and get to talk to each panelist and the keynote on a smaller scale. They can ask questions about the different topics.”
For those who can’t find a babysitter, Benjamin said a movie will be shown on the other side of the center to keep children occupied for parents who would like to attend.
