The new rescheduled date for the 5th annual UWB Equity and Inclusion Conference will be on Friday, May 10, 2019.
We are excited to announce this year's keynote speaker, Loretta Ross.
"Calling IN the Calling OUT Culture: Accountability through Love"
We are facing a tumultuous future in this country. Fighting against oppression and injustice are the dues we pay for the privilege of being conscious and we are honored to be able to challenge it with great responsibility. Loretta will talk about how we can transform the Calling Out Culture into a Calling In Culture in order to build a united movement for human rights.
