The Conference of World Affairs (CWA) schedule and registration is now live! This year, CWA has 3 themes designed to generate conversation about today's most prominent issues:

  • The Next 100 Years: Explore how global innovators, educators, and professionals will come together to explore the intersection of technological changes and sociocultural influences shaping the future.
  • Global Equity: Discuss the difference between equity versus equality and address historical perspectives and future directions.
  • Leadership: Learn from diverse leaders in politics, business, activism, academics, sports and the arts. 

Attend a variety of panels with experts who will discuss these topics and reserve the sessions that interest you the most. Deion Sanders, aka Coach Prime, will be the closing keynote speaker, so don't miss out! Learn more and register for panels on the CWA website.
