We invite Colorado high school students to participate in the 2013 High School Diversity Conference. This event will take place on October 8th, 2013. It will be held in the Lory Student Center on CSU’s Fort Collins campus. The goal of the High School Diversity Conference is to provide students with a safe environment to challenge stereotypes and grasp an appreciation and understanding of diversity. The High School Diversity Conference is an opportunity to educate young students on the constantly changing demographics of our world. Each year a variety of sessions are presented to explore issues surrounding race, color, gender, disability, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation. This year’s theme “Social Media… it’s a Small World” seeks to explore the topic of social media and the variety of ways it can impact today’s youth. The sessions are designed to develop and enhance diversity awareness, knowledge, and leadership skills for students in the 9th through 12th grades.
The High School Diversity Conference is free and open to all students. However, space is limited. Interested students should speak with Sylvia Martinez in the PHS Counseling Department. You can contact Sylvia by calling 488-6052 (she doesn’t have an email). Her office is in the Counseling Office.
