Hanna Institute, at the Hanna Boys Center, is excited to announce that Mark Philpart, senior director at PolicyLink, will be the keynote speaker at its second Professional Networking Breakfast on March 9, 2017.
Marc will speak about the Boys and Men of Color Framework, which explores the deep evolutions toward equity that are beginning to take place in our communities. There will also be an open forum discussion in how culturally relevant trauma-informed practices can dramatically improve life outcomes among young people in Sonoma County.
The breakfast will also provide an opportunity for public education, healthcare and human services professionals—as well as others engaged in youth wellness, advocacy and education—to come together and network.
To register for this breakfast lecture, which takes place on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m., contact Leslie Petersen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-933-2555.
The cost of the event is $30 per person (tables of 8 are available for $225), and because seating is limited, registration is required.
The event will be held at Hanna Boys Center Auditorium, 17000 Arnold Drive, Sonoma, CA 95476.
