HBCU Student Leadership and Social Justice Conference
Join us at the 4th Annual HBCU Student Leadership and Social Justice Conference, presented by the Department of Social Work and the Dr. Dorothy I. Height Center for the Advancement of Social Justice.
This virtual event will begin with the opening plenary and Annual Dr. Dorothy I. Height Lecture on Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at 6:00 PM. The conference will continue on Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM with panel presentations and will conclude on Friday, March 26 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM with student presentations.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Social Justice Realized: Strategize. Organize. Mobilize. Exercise.” We intend to promote the utilization of those four elements to actually realize the elimination of racism as well as the achievement of equal opportunity and justice. Furthermore, our conference panel discussions will address social justice, community engagement and leadership development.
Along with presentations on subjects related to social justice and leadership development, we will provide an opportunity for students to present their related research during our electronic poster sessions on Friday. The student track will focus on the following areas: Health and Mental Health Disparities and COVID-19, Educational Access in the Age of Technology, Mobilizing Citizens to Action, Faith and Womanism in Action, Running for Political Office, and Leading After the Election.
