INTERSECT: Diversity & Leadership Conference

Friday, Nov. 13th, 3pm to Saturday, Nov. 14th, 4pm

100 Campus Drive

Elon, NC

INTERSECT is a two-day conference that produces engaged dialogue, reflection, and training through keynote speakers and workshops.

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.


Conference Pillars

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.


Registration fee is $50. Registration deadline is October 30th. More information about the conference here: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/multicultural_resources/conference/about.xhtml


If you're interested in attending, please contact Katie Loudin at loudin_k@wvwc.edu.
