Mark your calendars, the Center for Culture, Equity, and Empowerment and the Leadership Education and Development Office (with the support of many amazing UL partners) are teaming together to bring our community, the first ever Diversity Leadership Summit on Saturday, March 4th from 10:00am-4:00pm in Merten Hall.

The Diversity Leadership Summit positions the campus community to come together in various ways to learn, collaborate, and teach about social justice issues that impact our campus, our local communities and beyond. This summit will help to build capacity to have critical dialogue, expand consciousness of self and others, and create liberating and equitable practices, all of which increases student leadership development. The Diversity Leadership Summit will be a place where we will engage in narrative change work by uplifting and centering various sites of knowledge, voices, and experiences, including the ways knowledge is embodied. We empower our students, faculty, and staff to leverage not only their research but also their lived experiences, ideas, and insights to tell more inclusive and complex stories of the past, present, and future of our campus and communities.

As a result of participating in the 2023 Diversity Leadership Summit, attendees will: 

  *   Explore their identities and culture and deconstruct its impact on how they make meaning and behave.
  *   Identify the ways our collective socialization processes inform our identities and recognize that within all of our dominant, marginalized and subordinated excellence, we share a rich, diverse history of our thoughts, voices, contributions, and lived experiences that strengthen our community and the world
  *   Build emotional intelligence and capacity to engage in cross-cultural with empathy and vulnerability, around various social justice issues that impact our campus, local communities, and beyond
  *   Describe at least one specific action they can take to promote positive social change at the individual, relationship, community or societal level
  *   Challenge the boundaries of your comfortability when interacting within and across communities and generate steps to develop meaningful and authentic relationships
