The Clayton State University Office of Campus Life’s Fifth Annual Diversity and Multicultural Conference will be held on Friday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the ballroom of the Student Activities Center.
The Diversity and Multicultural Conference is a dynamic and interactive one-day development opportunity that gives participants the essential knowledge and strategies needed to lead and function in a globally complex society. This conference is a great career and personal development opportunity for students, faculty and staff; separate conference tracks are implemented to meet the needs of both groups.
The conference theme is, “Beyond Race: The Forgotten ‘isms.’”
“Our goal is to broaden participants understanding of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice,” says Lakiesa C. Rawlinson, associate director of Campus Life. “Additionally, we’ll explore the intersection of social identities and how our social identities can create privilege and oppression.”
Registration for the conference is now open until Friday, Sept. 27. The conference is free for Clayton State students; Clayton State faculty and staff are $20, and non-Clayton State participants are $40. The registration fee covers continental breakfast, lunch and conference materials. Visit http://apps.clayton.edu/webreg/register/Diversity2013 to register.
