Select | Shift | Delete: Rewriting Your Narrative in the Digital Age –  A lot has been said and written about the importance of rewriting the narrative… the historical narrative… the hidden narrative…. the career narrative… the life narrative.

Moderated by KiKi Orr, this panel will reintroduce you to empowered interpretation even in the midst of a catastrophic breakdown.


  4:00 PM
Creating Community with the Power of the Collective– This panel, which will be moderated by Dr. Nandi Shareef, is premised on a few provocative questions, including: How do you prevail when confronted by microaggression? What’s your particular path to belonging and how do you engage others?
