The Personal is Political: Showing Up for Ourselves and in Solidarity
“Certainly there are very real differences between us…But it is not those differences between us that are separating us. It is rather our refusal to recognize those differences…”- Audre Lorde
The Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center is currently accepting workshop/session ideas for our annual Diversity Leadership Conference (DLC) happening Friday, February 21st from 3-7 pm.
DLC is an annual event that is intended to showcase the multiple ways in which leadership lives in our communities. This year, DLC will focus on highlighting UW student voices as they co-facilitate workshops with a mentor. The theme of DLC 2020 is The Personal is Political: Showing Up for Ourselves and in Solidarity. The theme is meant to reflect and pay homage to the intersectional work of feminist womxn of color. Additionally, with the U.S. Presidential Elections happening in the year 2020, event organizers hope participants can engage in conversations of activism/advocacy for themselves and marginalized/targeted communities.
If you’re interested in meeting fellow UW student leaders from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, consider attending this event. It’s a great chance to network with those outside of your immediate program in an informal setting. This roundtable features conversations with UW student leaders about leadership development, culture and leadership, resilience, and other topics centered around cross-cultural leadership. There will be serving free pizza at the event, and all students are encouraged to attend.
