The Inclusive Leadership Conference Committee is pleased to announce that the Call for Proposals is open for this year’s event, scheduled for Saturday, February 9, 2018 at the Howard Gittis Student Center on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.
This year, the committee is looking for presentations from professionals in the greater Philadelphia area to present during 50-minute workshops.
The conference is the largest in the greater Philadelphia area dedicated to inclusive leadership, hosting over 500 students and professionals from 26 schools and numerous businesses and community organizations.
This year’s theme is Random Acts of Inclusion. The committee is seeking proposals that connect with the conference theme and answer at least one of the following questions:
* What is the true definition of advocacy and allyship and how does one determine their most authentic approach?
* What are effective ways to have healthy discourse and critical conversations around inequities in a free-thinking era (everyone has an opinion; everyone is an expert)?
* How does an individual use their personal values and strengths and professional and social roles to enact positive change in the world?
* How can one ensure that all intersectional identities are included in advocacy efforts?
* In what ways can advocates challenge over-utilized and over-generalized terms surrounding diversity, inclusion and multicultural leadership?
The intent is to engage participants in various levels related to their stages of advocacy.
Conference fees are waived for one presenter per presentation. We encourage you to submit no more than two proposals, either as a main presenter or co-presenter. All proposals will be reviewed by the planning committee in November and selected presenters will be notified early December.
The conference is co-sponsored by Temple University’s Office of Leadership Development, Institutional Diversity (IDEAL), University Housing and Residential Life departments, and Campus Philly.
