- ON-DEMAND ACCESS
You know why you want to attend the Diversity Abroad Conference, but you may need management’s approval to register. There are several strategies you can use that you can use to communicate effectively the value of your participation in conference activities. We have included a few below to get you started.
The Diversity Abroad Conference volunteer experience provides meaningful, practical work and professional development opportunities at the Diversity Abroad Conference. 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 our annual conference. Diversity Abroad will need a volunteer staff to work dedicated shifts of 2-4 hours over the conference days, April 7 – 10, 2018. Upon successful completion of duties, Volunteers will receive a letter of recommendation from Diversity Abroad. Volunteers will also have limited access to conference sessions and events, networking opportunities with seasoned professionals in the field of international education. Please note: we are unable to honor specific schedule requests (outside of presenting for the conference). Volunteers will need to be available to attend a virtual orientation session on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.
*Please note, discounts cannot be applied retroactively to registrations that have already been completed.
The DAC Mentoring Match-Up is designed to illicit engagement between professionals with 5+ years of experience and students/new professionals. Diversity Abroad will provide the contact information of the matched mentor and mentee so that the pair may engage in conversations leading up to the conference and determine a meeting time at the conference to discuss academic and career goals. Depending on the number of mentorship requests, the mentor may be asked to be paired with more than one mentee. You will have an opportunity to sign up as a mentor or mentee through the registration system.
