Power in diversity

Friday, June 25, 2010


More than 240 students from 15 colleges attended the “Power In Diversity
Leadership Conference” in January. The weekend conference provided workshops,
speakers and a variety show.

St. Cloud State’s Multicultural Student Services (MSS) sponsored the conference. Students, faculty, staff and advisers from MnSCU and other regional colleges attended the conference to enhance their leadership skills. In conjunction with the conference MSS teamed up with Career Services to offer a Diversity Job Fair. The pairing created a unique opportunity for students to connect with nearly 50 of Minnesota’s largest businesses in technology, healthcare, government, and education as well as a number of non-profits. “We were very impressed with the caliber of students we met,” said Stephanie Davis, human resources manager for Frito-Lay. “The students were prepared and had a lot of relevant work and educational experience that would translate well into the ‘real’ work world.”
