This semester Diversity and Inclusion - Housing is hosting the 2nd Annual intersectional conference, a unique opportunity to participate in a conference that focuses on the intersections of our identity. Often in our work we talk about identities in separate boxes, but what we know in reality is that our identities intersect and show up in different ways depending on the space we are in. During this conference participants will have an opportunity to pick a conference track related to different intersections of identity and to discuss how that affects our work and interactions with colleagues and students. Sessions will be kept small for more personal reflection and will consist of small group discussions, presentations, and dialogues. We hope you will join us for this opportunity.
Conference will be kept small; therefore, we are limiting registration to 30 individuals. If the conference is full when you sign up, there will be a waitlist.
Registration is $25.00 per Student Life person and $150.00 for non-Student Life participants. A full lunch will be provided.
Conference Level: Intermediate

Every year, we tell ourselves the same thing: “I’ll do it this summer.” Found an interesting article to read? “I’ll read it this summer.” Need revamp a process or flesh out a big project? Want to rework a job description? Hope to revamp your résumé? “I’ll do it this summer.” Flash forward to August--What do we hear? “Summer went by so fast!” We did not do what we hoped to do. We have fallen prey to the myth of summer again.

Summertime cannot be a productive time for us if we do not have the tools to maximize the summer AND the rest of the year. This working session is an opportunity to take stock of your professional needs and goals for the next six months (and beyond). I will offer adaptable tools for participants to identify both values and action items to be effective in what is most important to you. At the end of the session, participants will have mapped out an individualized plan for at least one longer-term goal and have a foundation to move other work forward. Turn your mentality of “I’ll do it this summer” into “If I stay ready, I don’t have to get ready”!
