BiHDC 2021 – “Vivid Visions: A Decade of Diaspora Development” (A Virtual Gathering)

May 21 @ 3:00 pm - May 22 @ 6:00 pm PDT

Our theme this year, Vivid Visions: A Decade of Diaspora Development, looks toward the future of what the 20’s will bring for the Bosnian and Herzegovinian diaspora. This year, we are in search of your ideas and lessons from the past while proposing specific plans for the future.
_
Here are some of the questions that will guide our conference day on May 22nd.
How do you envision our community in the next decade?
What goals have you set for the next decade with regards to your work?
What goals have you set in regards to communication within the next decade?
What have you learned over the last decade that will inform your goals?
Who will you work with over the next decade to accomplish these goals?
What resources do you need for these goals?
What inspired you to achieve what you have at this point?
What challenges do you think you will face?
We are not asking for submissions for this year’s conference but we are asking you to bring your thinking caps. So bring your expertise, from figuring out how to apply for school funding to …running your nonprofit …to starting your own HVAC company, we want to hear your ideas.
We want to collaborate with YOU this year to create goals for the next decade for the diaspora. We are stronger together and we can’t make positive changes unless we all do our part and step forward.
So here’s what this year will look like:
May 21, 2020
8pm EST/5pm PST (2hrs) – Networking Event
During this time you’ll get a chance to meet the other attendees and network a bit to get more comfortable.
May 22, 2020
2pm EST/ 11amPST (4hrs) – Conference Day
During this time you’ll hear from our Keynote Speakers (BH Futures Foundation and Restart). They will kick off the conference and close out to inspire us into further action.
The rest of the day will be spent in workshops that will be led by community organizers, academics, business leaders and subject specific experts. During this time we will need your ideas and expertise while we discuss the next decade of development in the diaspora and in Bosnia and Herzegovnia.
The full program scheduled will be released in May of 2021.
