Conference Volunteer

Diversity Abroad is looking for students and young professionals to volunteer at the 5th Annual Diversity Abroad Conference being held March 19 – 22, 2017 in Minneapolis, MN.

The Diversity Abroad Conference volunteer experience provides meaningful, practical work and professional development opportunities at the Diversity Abroad Conference. The annual Diversity Abroad Conference — along with the Global Student Leadership Summit & the MSI Global Education Summit — constitutes the most comprehensive national forum on issues of access, diversity, equity, and inclusion in global education.

Diversity Abroad is now accepting applications for Volunteers to assist in a variety of tactical and logistical coordination of the many tasks associated with hosting the Diversity Abroad Conference. Diversity Abroad will need 10-15 volunteers to work dedicated shifts of 2-4 hours over the conference days, March 19 – 22, 2017

Upon successful completion of duties, Volunteers will receive a letter of completion from Diversity Abroad. Volunteers will also have limited access to conference events & networking opportunities with seasoned professionals. Please note: we are unable to honor specific schedule requests (outside of presenting for the conference).

Volunteers will need to be available to attend one virtual orientation session, which will be held on Monday, March 13th, 2017 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm EST.

If you are interested or you know of a student or young professional (defined as having fewer than 3 years of professional experience) who would be interested in volunteering at the Diversity Abroad Conference, please complete the application below.
