On Behalf of Josey Landrieu, Director of Diversity Programs and Evaluation
The Power in Diversity Conference is happening in 2 short weeks! This is an annual student leadership and diversity conference that takes place at the Saint Cloud State University Campus. New this year, and of special interest to your staff, faculty, and community partners will be a professional development opportunity that will include a training on cultural proficiency, a networking luncheon and a panel discussion with MnSCU Chief Diversity Officers. The track theme is “Cultural proficiency and strategic diversity as tools for building a high impact praxis.” Participants will explore the unique power dynamics of culture and race; examine definition and examples of cultural racism and socialization; explore the dynamics of cultural destructiveness, cultural incapacity, color-blindness and cultural competence; and learn from and network with equity and diversity professionals in education.
