Summing Up: Creating Change Conference 2012

As I stepped out of the crowded cab and onto the pavement in front of the Hilton, the scene looked mildly familiar.
A few queers huddled outside for a smoke, while others arrived in yellow vehicles periodically, just as we had. Every city, each hotel, same feeling. Muddled excitement was in the air even though it was Tuesday and attendees were few in number.
I’ve been to the Creating Change Conference through a few different avenues. First, through impromptu 13-hour-drives, sleeping on hotel carpets, fundraising/scrapping/university funds for social and academic learning, and finally as a member and workshop facilitator with FIERCE.

“After an internal assessment, we made an organizational decision to move back to a Co-Director model, a structure we had from 2006 to 2007,” stated Yasmeen Perez, FIERCE’s outgoing Interim Director. “We are excited to move forward with a shared leadership model that will allow for more sustainability and provide greater capacity to the organization.”

I would like to share some of my experience at this year Creating Change Conference that took place at Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I had very unique experience. During, the preparation meetings, I was able to build some really strong teamwork skills, explore many techniques about curriculum development, workshop group facilitation, and media and networking communications.
