The ALLY Conference is a one-day program that will empower its participants with the knowledge and enthusiasm to strive for change and allyship through its workshops and keynote speaker. The conference will offer opportunities to learn about and discuss social themes that affect different student populations, such as women, people of color, persons with disabilities and the LGBTQ community. The ALLY Conference will emphasize diversity and accessibility issues within all the student populations, and also provide a safe environment to celebrate the diversity and talents of women, people of color, persons with disabilities and the LGBTQ community.
