The National Cross-Cultural Counseling and Education Conference for Research, Action, and Change serves as a professional diversity platform. Each year, clinicians, educators, higher education professionals, change agents, and students gather for two days of critical interactions and community around topics of oppression, identity, society, and social action. The conference’s renowned William Cross Jr. Lecture Series invites participants to deeply explore the topic of identity. With an emphasis on skill-building, attendees leave the conference with practical, actionable strategies that embrace anti-oppressive perspectives.

Major Topics Include:
  • Identity Development: Racial, Ethnic, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Spiritual/Religious, and Ability
  • Majority Privilege and Social Group Impact
  • Cultural and Ethical Competencies in Counseling, Supervision, and Education
  • Anti-Oppression/Anti-Racism
  • Social Justice,  Social Advocacy, and Social Action
  • Racial and Cultural Issues in Community, School, and Higher Education Settings
