The 5th annual Power in Diversity Leadership Conference will offer opportunities for personal growth and leadership development to college students of color and underrepresented students through a variety of workshops, keynote addresses and programs. It will also provide a forum for student leaders to connect with others from colleges and universities across the region. Advisors, faculty and staff who work with student leaders will also have a chance to network and to share ideas and strategies.

Conference attendees will learn from leadership activities that will assist in the development and enhancement of one’s own skills to successfully navigate through college and into the workforce and to be a support for other students as well.

The conference theme, “Today’s Vision: Tomorrow’s Reality,” will set the stage for keynote speakers and workshop presenters to identify ways that participants can lead the way in implementing the positive changes for tomorrow’s world that they are envisioning today.
