"Be the Future"

 

JULY 30 – AUGUST 2, 2017 • HYATT REGENCY O’HARE • ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS

Pioneer Network hosted an annual conference to showcase innovative thought and best practices in the long-term care culture change movement — and provided an opportunity for people interested in many aspects of culture change to network and inspire each other. Our conferences are attended by people from across the United States and other nations who care deeply about changing the culture of aging. As always, we strive to make these events meaningful for people who are just starting on the culture change journey to build a sense of home and community for our elders — as well as those who have been actively engaged in this mission for some time.


Carter Catlett Williams Convening the 2017 Pioneer Network Conference

Watch this wonderful video of Carter Catlett Williams, convening the conference once again this year. It is a 5 minute dose of culture change inspiration through Carter’s magnificent voice, heart and images. Show it to others and hand out Pioneer Network’s Values and Principles Card (pdf) and then discuss together what you are inspired to do in the days to come.
