The Freedom to be Yourself

This session is an honest, no-offense-taken, collaborative conversation between the facilitators and participants about the reality of diversity in this country, in higher education, and on a personal level. As much as this conversation is about diversity, it’s also about being a leader, stepping outside of our own comfort zones to understand others, and knowing when to lead others to a higher level. It’s about how we can all get the most from our relationships and achieve what we want collectively. It’s for student organizations, advisors, grad students, and undergraduates. It’s for all of us.

The event starts at 8:30 PM on Zoom!

Late Night is hosting a trivia night!  The theme is Pixar trivia.  All are welcome!  Students are eligible to win a $25 gift card! Download Kahoot! ahead of time to play and join us on Zoom at 7:00 PM!
