Riot Conference for Female-Identifying Students of Color
We want to send out a last-minute reminder that you have until Friday, March 5th to sign up for the Riot Conference which will be on March 20th. To recap --The Riot Conference is a free, one-day event held for female-identifying students of color from independent high schools that University High School students have been planning since this summer. Attendants will hear from our two amazing keynote speakers:
Dr. Akilah Cadet, CEO of Change Cadet Consulting https://www.changecadet.com/
Mariam Naficy: founder and CEO of Minted, https://www.minted.com/
Followed by a panel and workshops led by 7 dope women of color who have all excelled in their respective fields:

(bottom left to right) Shafia Zaloom: Author and health educator, Deeksha Gulati: Founder of LILAS Wellness, Cynthia Meng: Music director, software engineer, pianist
Through keynote speeches, panels, workshops, and discussions, these women will share their stories as well as their advice and resources for young WOC hoping to enter similar career fields in the future -- including politics, criminal justice, medicine, public health/health education, music and art, entrepreneurship, writing, and activism.
