Events Highlight: Empowering, Enlightening, and Educational Events

March at The Conference Center at GTCC was alive with a whirlwind of events, and we’d like to share a few of them with you.

Shift-Ed, a local organization committed to accelerating student potential, held its “Aligning Resources for Collective Impact” event on March 19th. Over 100 guests joined together to explore strategies, exchange best practices, and collaborate on ways to address barriers to hindering upward mobility. The event began with registration and lunch in the Pre-Function Space and a general session in the Auditorium. Guests then selected from six different breakout sessions, held in the 2nd Floor Boardroom, Business Resource Room, Classroom 132, and Truist Oak Ridge Rooms AB and CD. A networking reception ended the day with beverages and hors d’oeuvres, like this beautiful Fresh Vegetable Skewers display.

The National Institute of Minority Economic Development, in partnership with the Women’s Business Center of the Triad, held a “Do the Work Power Luncheon” on March 26th. Over 100 guests attended the day-long event, which focused on “Fueling Success, Igniting Potential!” Interactive sessions focusing on leadership, marketing, supplier diversity, and finance were offered, along with a “Power Panel” of representatives from the FDIC, Federal Reserve, and NC Department of Revenue. A vendor area offered participants the opportunity to access business development resources and talk to established small business owners.

On March 28th, the NC Public Health Association held the Kelly Spangler Public Health Social Work Conference, with over 160 guests in attendance. The conference theme was “Empowering Social Workers: Inspiring Action, Leading Change.” General sessions were held in the Auditorium and morning and afternoon breakout sessions were held in Truist Oak Ridge AB and CD, Business Resource Center, and Combined Classrooms 130/131. A Morning Coffee Service, Boxed Lunches, and an Afternoon Break kept guests well-nourished throughout the day. The conference was named in memory of Kelly Spangler, a public health social work consultant and advocate for the NC Women’s Health Branch for 23 years.
