About the conference
The Midwest Culturally Inclusive Conference (MCIC) is a regional conference for business and community leaders, college students, K-12 teachers and administrators as well as postsecondary faculty and staff who want to strengthen diversity throughout the Midwest and work collaboratively towards resolving issues related to equity, diversity, inclusion, representative leadership, and advancing professional development opportunities.
This year's theme is CONNECT, ENGAGE, TRANSFORM. MCIC 2014 is an opportunity for participants to CONNECT with others, ENGAGE in critical dialogue and concepts related to diversity and inclusion, and TRANSFORM their perspectives, actions, and communities.
The purpose of the conference is to facilitate participants' understanding of the economic and equity implications of diversity in a 21st century global economy, equip participants with skills to uproot discrimination across multiple forms (i.e. gender, class, race, sexual orientation, veterans, and disabilities), and foster relationship building between diverse groups to promote inclusive activism.
