LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ Registrations are being accepted for the second annual Celebrate, Educate and Appreciate Diversity (CEAD) conference at EOU Feb. 16.
This year’s event features a dozen different workshops, presentations and round-table discussions of topical issues like disparities in health care, queer justice, challenges women face in attaining leadership roles, and much more.
Attendees will also hear from plenary speaker Tamara Henderson, an activist and advocate for college access and former executive director of the Oregon Student Association. OSA is a student run organization, focusing on increasing access and affordability to an equitable post-secondary education for all Oregonians.
Henderson chaired the OSA Board of Directors as president of the Associated Students of Southern Oregon University from 2001-2002, and held the vice chair position for the United States Student Association’s People of Native American Descent Caucus that same year.
An enrolled member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, Henderson is currently the college and career coordinator for the Native American Youth and Family Center in Portland. She stays active with college access advocacy through her participation in the Oregon Student Foundation board and her roles as vice president of the Oregon College Access Network and co-convener for the Portland State University Native American Student and Community Center Advisory Board.
