Student demographics in higher education are shifting rapidly; as these students become alumni, is your institution positioned well to engage underrepresented populations in a meaningful way?

Join us for a conference to learn how to develop and implement diverse alumni engagement programming, while overcoming challenges with data and internal staff training. Our expert instructors will focus on how to reach, communicate with, and engage diverse alumni populations intentionally and effectively. You will identify your next key steps and develop an action plan to implement on your campus immediately.

Assess Yourself

As part of your registration, prior to the conference, you will participate in the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). The IDI is an online psychometric instrument based on the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS). The IDI is useful for personal development and self-awareness, audience analysis, examining topics salient to the training program, organizational assessment and development, and data-based intercultural training. This tool will be your foundation for understanding the nuances and complexities of cultural sensitivity and its importance in alumni programming.

Pre-Conference Workshop: Recruiting a Diverse Staff

An essential element of developing your alumni engagement for diverse audiences is ensuring your staff is representative of your alumni body. We encourage those in positions of hiring and staffing influence to join us to learn how to:

  • Maximize job postings
  • Reduce unconscious bias in the hiring process
  • Find creative solutions towards attracting diverse staff

Who Should Attend

Alumni relations professionals and those in advancement leadership looking to diversify their alumni engagement efforts are encouraged to attend. The content will be also applicable to annual giving professionals and diversity and inclusion officers.
