Power in Diversity Leadership Conference - Multicultural Student Services

Workshop Proposal (RFP)

This year’s conference theme is Raising Voices Lifting Leaders. We are witnessing extraordinary national political developments, international events and humanitarian concerns, and powerful social movements. As leaders in our communities, how do we support one another? How do we continue to develop our skills? What does self-care look like during these challenging times? What resources are available? Successful workshop proposals will address these questions and topics in relation to the theme.
