Presented by the Student Diversity Board
The purpose of the Diverse Students’ Leadership Conference is to enrich each participant's perspective of the adversities and benefits within diverse academic, social and professional settings. The Conference is structured so that all of those involved may accomplish the following:
Identify the challenges and underlying prejudices that exist in various social institutions.
Develop educational and interactive skills to transform the challenges of diversity into opportunities.
Become empowered leaders actively promoting the advantages of diversity.
The founders of DSLC envisioned this conference as a way to bring students, community leaders, scholars, and representatives from corporate America together. The goal was to create a forum for examining the positive impact diversity provides to all types of settings. We could not be more pleased with how the DSLC has grown. Our intentions for the conference are to educate and foster intercultural interaction amongst participants. After experiencing the workshops, diversity showcase, career exposition, and keynote address, our challenge to you is to reconsider your thoughts on diversity and the role it plays in our world. Social injustices may always be present, but it is up to each of us to educate ourselves and to then take action towards changing the world for the better.
