IS THIS A PERMANENTLY VIRTUAL CONFERENCE?
No! Due to COVID-19, we decided that our first annual conference will be online. Although it is online, we hope that we can emulate the experience of an in-person conference, and we are confident that we can create the same energy and connections that form when students passionate about DEI come together. For future years, we hope to host participants in-person at one of our organizing schools.
DO I NEED TO HAVE PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IN DEI?
Being a part of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) community does not call for any previous experience. You do not need to have gone to previous conferences to attend this one. All we need is an open mind, a commitment to change, and a readiness for respectful dialogue.
WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS CONFERENCE?
We designed this conference with the purposes of educating – not only through stellar workshop leaders, but through conversations with each other. We truly hope you will leave this conference and have a wider world view, an aptness for understanding, and an aspiration to make change in yourself, your communities, and the greater world.
HOW CAN I SIGN UP?
On the menu bar, there is a sign up button at the top right corner of the screen. It will take you to an interest form. Or you can submit your email in our subscribe form a the bottom of the page. You will be included into our mailing list for further information on how to RSVP!
