Advanced Leadership Track

Register Now

Students who are interested in an intensive, cohort-based training can apply to participate through the Diversity Leadership Conference registration page. This training will be facilitated by members of the UW community, and will allow participants to take a deep dive into concepts such as advocacy, allyship, power and privilege.

Students who complete this training will:

  • Be better able to relate their personal experiences with academic and future professional lives
  • Be better able to identify and define privilege and power
  • Be better able to show up for other marginalized communities

Students must submit a brief essay as part of their registration to be considered for this track. Students should consider applying for this training if they are willing to engage in a dialogue that will explore and perhaps challenge perceptions of what diverse leadership looks like, and are a junior or senior looking to connect their student leadership and personal experience to life after college.
