2023 Intersect Conference!
Intersect 2023 Conference Theme: “Look Out for Yourself. Look Out for Each Other. Look Out for Our Future.”
The Center for Leadership, and the Center for Race, Ethnicity & Diversity Education are excited to invite you to the 2023 Intersect Conference on September 22nd! Intersect provides a look at the disciplines of diversity, leadership, and the cross-sections of the two. Participants engage in dialogue and reflection through keynote speakers and educational sessions. The conference pillars work to inspire participants to create positive change for the common good in their organizations and communities.
The Intersect Planning Committee is excited to provide the space for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members to engage in dialogue on these topics through in-person sessions. We would love for you to be a part of our conference this year and we ask you to encourage others to participate.
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 Center for Race, Ethnicity, and Diversity Education have collaborated to provide attendees with an unprecedented look at the disciplines of diversity, leadership, and the cross-sections of the two. Intersect educates students, faculty, and 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.
During this conference, participants will engage in dialogue, reflection, and training through keynote speakers, workshops, and lunch and learns. The conference pillars work to inspire participants to create positive change for the common good in their organizations and community.
Oppression, social change, power & privilege, and organizational development are the four pillars of the Intersect Conference. These pillars were chosen because they represent the intersectionality of leadership and diversity. Our understanding of these concepts will not only inform our understanding but also our ability to engage in meaningful conversations and behaviors.
Intersect is FREE for all Elon students, faculty, and staff. There is a $30 registration fee for outside participants. This fee will contribute to your registration and food throughout the conference.
