Parks as Critical
Infrastructure: How to
Quantify and Message
Their Equity, Health,
Climate and Economic
Benefits
There is growing awareness of
the structural inequities in our
communities. We now know that
parks serving non-white populations
are, on average, half
the size of parks in white neighborhoods,
yet serve five times
as many people. Similarly, lowincome,
non-white neighborhoods
are
disproportionately
vulnerable
to flooding and extreme heat
because they lack adequate green
space. To change this, we must
transform the public's perception
of parks as nice-to-have amenities
to must-have infrastructure.
Using case studies from around
the country, presenters will share
how to effectively communicate
the benefits of parks, attract advocates
and build support. They will
share examples of how parks generate
significant benefits, new research
that quantifies carbon capture,
and resources that position
green infrastructure in parks as a
multi-benefit community solution.
Attendees will learn how to advocate
for parks as critical solutions
to the most pressing challenges
facing our communities.

post-pandemic world? We
will
review the immediate impacts of
COVID-19 on a two-time National
Gold Medal agency, which has
historically achieved 100 percent
cost recovery on its community
center and programming. We
also will explore the strategies
being implemented to reimagine
our revenue operations for a sustainable
future. Come prepared
to share how your agency is pivoting
to generate income in this
new era.

Next Practices for the
Post-Pandemic 2020s
As we start thinking about what
a post-pandemic world may look
like in the future, this session will
help attendees think of next practices
they want to shape to design
an inclusive, welcoming and financially/environmentally
sustainable
park and recreation agency. In
these
increasingly
unpredictable
times with changing demographics
and technologies, this session
also will share insights for how to
build an agency culture and mindset
that can innovate and thrive
in chaos and embrace change as
park and recreation agencies look
to continue playing the role of essential
components that sustain the
community's very fabric and way
of life.

Lean in! Navigating and
Eliminating Imposter
Syndrome
Do you ever wonder if co-workers
think you don't belong and question
how you got your position?
Do you believe you lack credibility?
Do you look at potential
jobs and feel like you aren't qualified
even though, on paper, you
clearly are? If so, you may have
Imposter Syndrome - a natural
thought process where you
may have feelings of inadequacy,
self-doubt or intellectual fraudulence.
Studies have found that an
estimated 70 percent of people
have experienced these feelings at
some point in their careers. Minorities
and women are the most
at risk - because the less you are
surrounded by people who look
or sound like you, the less confident
you may feel - which may
make you question your place
and your abilities. This talk will
help you recognize those feelings,
invalidate them when they
falsely occur, and re-frame your
narrative. Your uniqueness is an
asset to your agency - capitalize
on that and lean in so you can silence
those negative thoughts and
move forward in your career.
