SMALL MATTERS: Little things can (re)make a life

Thursday - Friday, September 10th and 11th

On September 10 and 11, 2020 more than 2,000 gathered virtually or together in small groups around the world to experience SMALL MATTERS. Two full days of powerful simulcasts and deep dive tracks ranging from connected parenting and family issues of today, to caring for your teams in times of anxiety and leading in unstable times.

Thursday, September 10 included focused interactive intensives for parents, organization leaders, advocates and more -- all virtual and now offered on-demand through the remainder of 2020.

Friday, September 11 included small groups gathering by region (both virtually and in-person) for the live CAFO-wide SMALL MATTERS event followed by afternoon deep-dive tracks. These workshops and intensives are now available to access on-demand for individuals and teams.
