FAQ
____________________

The Regional Student Diversity Summit (RSDS) is an all day in-person diversity conference for Southern California high school students. This conference focuses on respectful dialogue, the relationship between current and systemic issues, and the potential youth have to catalyze change. Participating students engage with keynote speakers, lecturers, and workshop leaders from around the country on topics of social justice and inclusion at all levels, and build connections between themselves in affinity spaces. RSDS is a grassroots initiative, organized by students of San Diego, California's leading educational institutions.

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.
