The annual Power in Diversity Conference will be held at St. Cloud State University from January 25-27, 2018.
2018 Theme: “Raising Voices Lifting Leaders” 

In its ninth year, the Power in Diversity Leadership Conference offers college students of color and underrepresented students opportunities for personal growth and leadership development. Workshops, keynote addresses and programs build leadership and communication skills, promote academic excellence and reinforce education and cultural development — all in the spirit of change. The conference also helps student leaders to connect with others from across the region.
