American Association for Access Equity and Diversity Event Wrap-Up

In June, the American Association for Access Equity and Diversity (AAAED) held it 44th annual conference in Atlanta.  This year our conference theme “Keeping the Dream Alive” was highlighted throughout with engaging workshops, plenaries and keynote speakers. We offered specialty courses for title IX and certifications for senior level affirmative action professionals (Sr-CAAP) and also for the New Professionals Academy.    We welcomed impactful topics on civility, compliance, diversity, civil rights in higher education and for business; we ended by exploring how to continue our mission in today’s highly charged climate.  Save the date for our 45th annual conference to be held June 11-13, 2019 in Indianapolis where the theme will be “Moving Beyond Diversity Towards Equity and Inclusion.”
