The Voices Conference is a two-day event, sponsored by The Voices Project, providing leadership training and platform for BIPOC leaders. Our vision is to give voice to our own history and experiences and to annually connect, train, and inspire these leaders to be successful cultural influencers in all spheres of society. The conference experience is created by leaders of color for leaders of color who are committed to institutional impact and systemic change.

The conference includes artists and poets, academics and preachers, activity and discussion, laughter and reflection. Intentional effort is made to create safe spaces for leaders to be known as their authentic selves and for collaboration with other cultural influencers.

About the organizer

Organized by
The Voices Project

In a generation where people of color are systematically marginalized, we need voices to advocate for effective change. These voices must come from leaders who understand from experience, the plight of communities of color and who seek to channel that understanding to make lasting impact.

The Voices Project creates spaces by and for BIPOC leaders to gather for encouragement, meaningful dialogue and the exchange of ideas. The Voices Project is a leadership development organization that elevates the point of view of leaders of color, individually and collaboratively, to ensure that culture shifts in a way that benefits our communities and honors our culture.

All Saints Episcopal Church is a local church rooted in the ancient liturgies, while also open to modern prayers, inclusive language and new expressions of how we understand God.
