SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

ABOUT THIS YEAR’S CONFERENCE

We have seen the very best & the very worst of humankind over the past 2 years. The world has grappled with immense trauma, grief & loss on an unimaginable scale, while the struggle to achieve well-being for children & families across all communities goes on. The absence of true diversity, equity, inclusion & social justice continues to impact communities of color disproportionately. Yes, we have made some—mostly limited—progress, but so much more remains to be accomplished. We have been challenged to change our ways & innovate: to keep what is working, eliminate what is harmful, & build upon what can be improved. So…what have we learned? Where do we go from here? What comes next?

CMHACY’s vision for our 42nd annual conference is to explore how the events of 2020 & beyond have impacted the well-being of children & families, particularly in communities of color, & to come away with a plan to improve access to resources & to promote diversity, equity, inclusion & social justice, so that ALL children & families can live safe, healthy, & productive lives.


 

WHY SHOULD I SPONSOR? WHAT IMPACT DO I MAKE AS A SPONSOR?

CMHACY’s past two virtual conferences called out systemic & institutional racism that is pervasive in our care systems. We were challenged to make & implement REAL change – including asking ourselves difficult questions about how we can make the table bigger & root racism out of the systems that exist in our daily lives.

In an effort to create a more accessible & inclusive learning experience, we are excited to share that this year’s conference will be a HYBRID format. CMHACY is committed to fulfilling our promise to make the table bigger, & we truly believe that a hybrid conference provides a more inclusive & accessible learning experience for those who might not have the resources to join us in person. Both virtual & onsite audiences will have opportunities to interact with each other, our sponsors & our presenters in real-time creating a collaborative learning experience where every voice is truly heard.

Acquiring sponsorships to fund CMHACY’s hybrid conference is year is crucial. Making the table bigger isn’t always easy—it means more resources are needed to make this viable. Without sponsorships this year, we cannot make this goal a reality. This is a special invitation to your organization to partner with us & share your message as a true champion of diversity, equity, & inclusion (DEIJ) work.
