TWU Hosts Cultural Connections Conference Series

2/27/04


DENTON — The Texas Woman’s University Office of Intercultural Services is hosting the Cultural Connection Conference Series (CCCS), featuring the 3rd Annual African American Women’s Student Leadership Conference (AAWSLC) on March 27 and the Latina Leadership Conference (LLC) on April 2.

Both events are dedicated to promoting leadership, cultural awareness and celebrating diversity within the community through education, intense and honest dialogue and networking.

Registration is $25 for TWU students, staff and faculty, $20 for high school students and $30 for all others. The registration deadline is March 12. To register, contact the TWU Office of Intercultural Services at (940) 898-3634 or intercultural@twu.edu.

Both conferences will be held in TWU’s Student Center on the Denton campus.

Dr. Deleso Alford Washington, a gender law attorney from Washington D.C., will be the keynote speaker for AAWSLC. Her area of focus is the evolving legal theory of intersectionality, which addresses the particularized discrimination faced by women of color due to race, sex and class. She is interested in the application of intersectional discrimination in the workplace, both internationally and domestically.

Dallas City Council member Dr. Elba García will be the featured speaker for the Latina Leadership Conference. She is the spokesperson for the American Cancer Society for Latin women. As a council member, Dr. García serves on the city of Dallas’ Arts, Education and Libraries Committee, the Minority and Municipal Affairs Committee and is vice-chair of the Health, Human and Youth Services Committee.

Other presenters at the AAWSLC include Dr. Kevin Washington of RAM Enterprises, presenting a session titled “Realizing the Power of Divine Womanhood.” Dr. Pamela Nzingha Hill of African American News & Issues will present “Peace Power and Blessings.”

STEPS, the TWU Go Theatre motivational performance team, will perform at both conferences. Go Theatre uses "cool" and "diverse" university and high school students who are versed in theater arts, and who also receive mentoring training, to motivate middle and high school students to stay in school and go on to higher education. The performers also are trained to assist students with planning and applying for college.
