Conference Theme – All Identities–Bridging the Divide

This year’s conference program will explore how key facets of identity–gender, race, culture, ethnicity, age, social class, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression–play a significant role in how we experience the world. We will hear from students, professionals, practitioners, and leaders on how access and opportunity intersect with identity to influence our interactions with education, commerce, community, government, and, most importantly, each other, and how to bridge divides based on identity.
