On Saturday, February 14, join 400 other college students as you learn the best practices to lead inclusively, explore your own leadership values and exchange ideas to promote social change through collective impact. Over 20 workshops, presentations, panels and dialogues will be offered at the conference, presented by regional higher ed institutions, business leaders and community partners.

What kinds of workshops will be offered?

  • Vanguard, the 2015 ILC corporate sponsor, will take participants on an interactive journey to explore the importance of being an authentic leader.  Do you have what it takes?  Join Vanguard as they present The Power of Authentic Leadership and see if you have what it takes to become the type of leader people want to work with. All students who attend this workshop will receive a book as a thank-you gift. This workshop would be a great opportunity for students to meet and connect with the top student leaders in the region.
  • Are We Teaching Diversity All Wrong? Join presenters from Temple University and Collegiate EmPowerment for a unique conversation between two professionals and friends – one white and one black – that will challenge what you know about diversity and all of the –ism’s.
