It's time for a conference that centers around diverse stories, people, and lived experiences. It’s time for a conference that is less about academia and more about the actual people the data is talking about. By sharing our stories we let people know they aren’t alone. Stories create a connection to the material that no amount of data or graphs will ever convey. Our Vision for this conference is to give those who have braved the path already, those who have overcome many obstacles to find a place of peace, understanding, acceptance, neutrality and yes often love for their bodies to use their voice and share their stories with others.
Register for this conference now!! Starts January 18th 2021
