About the Conference
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 Cross-Spencer 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.
