10th Annual Diversity Conference: Finding the Courage to Lead

Monday, April 8, 2019

“Finding the Courage to Lead” aims to highlight the fearlessness and resilience needed when creating and sustaining an inclusive and equitable environment. Participants will not only engage around various markers of social justice, but also explore the strategies needed to create systemic change. The overall objective of the diversity conference is for the University community and the Greater Rochester community to engage with social justice topics. Each year the conference highlights a theme to help guide the focus for the day. Social justice topics may involve, but are not limited to: race/ethnicity, class, gender, culture, sexuality or orientation, disabilities/abilities, religion, or age.  Call for workshops and posters coming soon!
