LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – EOU’s third annual Celebrate, Educate and Appreciate Diversity (C.E.A.D.) conference is taking place Saturday, Feb. 8.
Registrations are being accepted through Monday, Feb. 3. Attendance is free for university students and staff, and $25 for community members. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Participants may also receive a certificate reflecting five hours of diversity training.
Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and wrap up at 2:30 p.m. with all workshops and presentations held in Badgley Hall on campus.
Structured much like a professional conference, CEAD is intended to help students gain skills that will enable them to develop as leaders and make connections with their peers. Networking opportunities between organizational leaders is also a focus, and all activities aim to increase competence in working with diverse individuals and groups.
“C.E.A.D. allows students to broaden their horizons and learn something new about diversity and others,” said EOU sophomore Julie Gulliford.
Gulliford will be presenting a workshop titled “Inclusion at its Greatest” focusing on how to include others regardless of personality, appearance or other characteristics individuals may have.
As a previous conference attendee, Gulliford added that completing diversity training helps students who are building their resumes.
“You learn a lot and you can have fun while doing so,” she said.
