Event Details

14th Annual Diversity Conference 

Building Community through Diversity:

RESPECTING DIFFERENCE

 

This year’s theme, “Building Community through Diversity: Respecting Difference,” will highlight diversity as an important value in building and nurturing a community through dialogue that addresses the myriad of challenges facing our society, as well as our growth in understanding and acting upon issues of diversity.

Our Conference seeks to promote open-mindedness, celebrate diversity, and promote awareness of divergent views on our college campuses and within our communities. The conference also serves as a forum in which to establish or enhance self-awareness in relation to community building endeavors.

Find out more information and read session descriptions on the Diversity Conference website.

He’s the former assistant director of academic enrichment and work readiness for the Hetrick Martin Institute, where he taught at-promise LGBT youth how to define success for themselves.
