Have you ever been so passionate about at cause the thought of it makes you want to do cartwheels in the very spot you stand? This idea grazes the excitement Cynthia Sorto has about participating in the Diversity Conference. She was first invited to participate last year in New Orleans, LA, and has since been invited back to the 2009 Conference in Denver, CO. We are all so proud of her! The success of the future depends on women (and men) like Cynthia that have a passion they do not merely speak about, but put into action. Keep up the great work!
Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC)
SDLC is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders (grades 9—12) from around the country. SDLC focuses on self reflecting, forming allies, and building community. Led by a diverse team of trained adult and peer facilitators, participants will develop effective cross-cultural communication skills, better understand the nature and development of effective strategies for social justice, practice expression through the arts, and learn networking principles and strategies. In addition to large group sessions, SDLC “family groups” and “home groups” allow for intense dialogue and sharing. SDLC and PoCC participants also interact in regional and intergenerational dialogue sessions
