Come join other girl leaders from across the country to explore new ways to view leadership at the Kaleidoscope National Leadership Conference July 5 - 8, 2018, in Memphis, TN. The Kaleidoscope Conference seeks to help create a generation of inclusive, culturally-competent leaders who know how to work together to make the world a better place.

The facts for women, and even more so for women of color, paint a picture of inequality. Women on average are paid 20% less than men. If you break the pay gap down by race and ethnicity, it is even worse: Black women are paid 37% less, and Hispanic women are paid 46% less. With values of inclusion, equity, and excellence, we seek to change the current view of leadership, providing positive role models so all young women can see that success is attainable.

During the conference, we will explore topics of diversity and inclusion, implicit biases, perceptions of women and people of color in the media, and more. Girls will have the opportunity to hear from female leaders in the fields of STEM, business, politics, and media. By teaching girls networking skills and resiliency, we hope they leave this conference prepared to demand a seat at the table.

Beyond engaging sessions and inspiring speakers, the girls will have the opportunity to explore Memphis and tour the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel.

Early Bird Cost (through 4/30/18): $200

Regular Cost (after 4/30/18): $400

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 5/15/18
