G.U.I.D.E. Conference

November 18, 2022

We are excited to share with everyone information regarding our upcoming 3rd annual virtual Growth, Understanding, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (G.U.I.D.E.) Conference will be held on November 18, 2022. The virtual conference is free. Registration is now open.

Purpose of the Conference

Our society’s current social and political moment calls for higher education to be better equipped to address and redress historical racial inequities.  Highly publicized events in the early months of 2020, including a pandemic, have brought attention to long-standing structural inequalities that determine different life outcomes for other social groups. Institutions of higher education are responsible for modeling values of inclusion and equity.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s Growth, Understanding, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (G.U.I.D.E.) Conference seeks to create a learning space for professionals in educational institutions and community-based organizations to celebrate achievements, be inspired by best practices, and learn how to drive change in their home institutions/organizations. The G.U.I.D.E. Conference brings together speakers with different areas of expertise. You will learn about equity issues in schools, communities, and the workplace, have an opportunity to network; and share best practices to apply as your G.U.I.D.E. for success!

Our Goal

The Diversity and Inclusion Team’s G.U.I.D.E. Conference aims to advance the D.E.I. Issues in Higher Ed, K-12 schools, communities, and workplace industries by building community and competency among all levels of employees and will cover D.E.I. subjects such as Implicit Bias; Norms/Discomfort in D.E.I. Conversations; Strategies and Potential Trends with African American Males in Higher Ed, Breaking Down Barriers Present Day, Gender Identity, Equity, and Engagement; L.B.G.T.Q.I.A. and more.
