Planning is well underway for Forum 2017, InterAction’s annual conference taking place June 20-22 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in D.C. The forum offers more than 40 breakout sessions designed for attendees at all stages of their careers including a CEO track, topical tracks for program and field staff, a Young Professionals Summit, and four powerful and compelling plenary sessions. A vibrant exhibit hall, abundant networking opportunities, and an Awards Banquet enhance the Forum experience.  United We Stand, the opening plenary on Tuesday, June 20, will be a celebration of our sector’s core values and an opportunity to hear how we can continue promoting dignity and action, particularly with closing space for civil society.  We are delighted to announce that Dr. Joyce Banda, former President of Malawi and Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights are confirmed as keynote speakers.

As we recognize World Refugee Day, our second plenary, The Changing Dynamics of Migration, will examine the reasons behind the increase in migrants, the challenges presented to governments and civil society by this mass movement of people, and the best practices for maintaining a culture of tolerance and acceptance.

On Wednesday, June 21, The Human Side of Technology will look at the opportunities and challenges of utilizing new technology to address community needs and respect human dignity and on Thursday, June 22, our closing plenary, Navigating the New Washington,  will examine how development and humanitarian actors can navigate rapid policy changes, assert their interests, and find common ground.

With the busy spring meeting schedule ahead, please remember to include this year’s Forum.
