You’re invited to attend the NC State Poole College of Management’s inaugural Poole Pride Conference sponsored by VF Corporation.

There will be two ways for participants to experience the day:

  • The Path to Empowerment includes a combination of self-empowerment workshops and informal meetings for those individuals who identify on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and will serve as a safe place to discuss various “in group” experiences. Topics of discussion in “meet-ups” may include dressing for enby (non-binary) success and current trends in inclusive LGBTQIA policies and practices in the workplace. VF Corporation is the signature sponsor for this tract.
  • The Path to Allyship provides attendees who identify as allies and advocates of the community to delve into more information and tips on how to support the LGBTQIA community.

The goal of the conference is to bring together professionals and undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in learning more about and supporting the LGBTQ+ community on campus and in the workplace. –– Tayah Butler, director of diversity and inclusion at Poole College.
