A Mosque Comes To Town: one community's experience with an ordinary zoning approval request in extraordinary times.

The panel did an excellent job showing different approaches from land use, public hearing techniques, and communication on top of law. I was impressed at how engaging law could be and its synthesis with a remarkable situation in suburban Indianapolis.

Ethics 2019: Imagine All the People

5

Lisa, KK, and Taylor had excellent insight adapting current behaviors, wording, and even work policies more inclusive, and they gave encouragement to report unwelcome behaviors discriminating LBBTQIA+ behaviors. I have even been able to implement some of their takeaways (I didn't realize how much I said "you guys!").
