In accordance with Elon University’s commitment to diversity and global engagement and the fostering of respect for human differences, the Center for Leadership and the Multicultural Center at Elon University have collaborated to provide participants with an unprecedented look at the disciplines of diversity, leadership and the cross-sections of the two. Intersect educates students, faculty and professional staff on topics of diversity and leadership. In previous years, these topics were explored through two independent conferences: the Diversity Leadership Conference and the Leadership Development Institute. Click here to learn about the conference histories.
During this two-day conference, participants will engage in dialogue, reflection and training through keynote speakers, workshops and lunch and learns. The conference pillars: power and privilege, social change, oppression, and organizational development work to inspire participants to create positive change for the common good in their organizations and community.
The two-day conference will take place February 22-23, 2013 at Elon University. Join us as we explore diversity and leadership together!
Call for Programs will take place in October 2012 and will be in search of speakers that support our mission and are looking to be involved. Sessions are either 50 minute workshops or 75 minute lunch and learns. Presentation topics should relate to the conference pillars of power and privilege, social change, oppression and organizational development. Additional information regarding the pillars and learning outcomes will be added later on this website.
