Our newest program, the first annual Mountain West Diversity Conference will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017.
This event is built on the highly successful model used by the Cherry Creek Diversity Conference, and we invite all Western Slope high school students and supportive faculty advisors to join us for this inaugural year! The conference will take place at Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum, Colorado, centrally located in the Colorado Rockies for most mountain-area schools to be within 2 hours driving time. You can get directions to the event here.
Schedule of Events
Similar to the statewide Cherry Creek Diversity Conference, participants will hear from a keynote speaker, participate in discussion groups, attend two workshops of their choice and plan with their schools on how to make their schools or communities a better place for everyone. Check out the day’s full schedule here to better understand what will happen at the event.
While most people associate the word ‘diversity’ with ethnicity or race, the conference deals a wide range of topics including cliques, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental challenges, multicultural art and music, socioeconomic concerns, and teenage social problems. Browse the workshops chosen by the conference Executive Committee to find topics of interest to you.
