The 2021 Posner Center Symposium will convene global and local development leaders, practitioners, researchers, academics, activists, policymakers, and supporters looking to focus on anti-racism in development work, diversify the global development field, and have a more equitable impact that begins to repair past and current injustices.

A complete program can be found here:

The symposium will also spend time collaborating and learning about ways society can disrupt deeply-rooted imperialist power structures and assumptions that are still embedded in development work and re-imagine more just approaches for global impact.

The Posner Center now features a "pay what you can" pricing scale where attendees can pay what they feel comfortable with while offering support to other participants. Ticket sales will support the Posner Center to pay a stipend to every single presenter, and the Posner Center will split 15% of the net profits between all presenters and the Symposium Planning Committee.

Consider paying more if:
You live in a High-Income Country or a colonizing country
Your organization is covering the cost of your ticket
You were not financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
You are planning to attend a majority of the sessions
You work for a for-profit organization or company
