Thank you to all who attended the 2023 WISe Symposium!
Together, we create a space that embraces community, connection, and collaboration. Thank you to the WISe Practitioners across the state who work tirelessly to ensure young people and their families are supported in meeting their self-identified goals. Thank you to our event sponsors, planning committee members, and development partners for making the 2023 WISe Symposium possible.
Change is made possible by the youth, caregivers, family members, WISe practitioners, community partners, system partners, and countless others who see that a real difference is made when we gather around the same table.
Thank you for pulling up a seat.
Recordings of the session will be available on the WISe Symposium Platform by August 31st, 2023.

WISe Training Manual Cover Art Contest!
It’s time for us to update our training manuals for the WISe Introductory, Intermediate and CANS trainings. We would love to use art created by the WISe workforce for the covers of these guides. As you are creating your art, please keep the following guidelines in mind.
• You may use any medium you choose, including digital media, drawing, painting, etc.
• It must be original work (no copyrighted images)
• Use at least one of the WISe principles as inspiration
• Submissions should be sent to email@example.com, and must be received by Aug 4th
All WISe Symposium attendees will have the opportunity to vote during the WISe Symposium. Three artists will be chosen. All submissions will be entered to win a prize. Each winner will be credited on the training material their art will be showcased on, and will receive a grand prize.
Let’s showcase and celebrate your work at the 2023 WISe Symposium!
Not feeling like a breakout session presentation is for you? Consider submitting a video or poster to be featured in the WISe Virtual Event platform! There are two categories to choose from:
WISe Showcase: Are you skilled with a camera phone? Do you want to showcase the great work that your WISe agency is doing? A family and/or youth that wants to share their story? Or share a cool WISe story and/or experience? Or anything fun related to WISe? Submit a video!
WISe Showcase submissions can be made through this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdEFxvdpjFInEBm82khQi7BvnQ3tEEiJ37scSSYljLXDbmxGA/viewform?pli=1
