Conference Dates: May 14 - 16, 2014
In Internet lingo, “NSFW” means Not Safe for Work – something that’s generally too risqué to be viewed in an office setting. So what does NSFW have to do with a teen pregnancy prevention conference?
Our jobs require us to push limits and address topics that some – even some of us – find controversial, taboo, or just irrelevant. Some don’t think that 18-19-year-olds “count” as teens. Some of us are uncomfortable talking about pornography. We may be afraid to acknowledge adolescent sexuality as something normal – or even positive. And then there are some topics so heartbreaking – human trafficking, sexual violence, drug abuse – that it can feel too overwhelming to talk about them at all.
This year’s conference aims to make these conversations entirely safe – and entirely routine – for our work in adolescent pregnancy prevention and sexual health. We hope you are as excited to begin them as we are.
