Welcome to NSLDC PRIDE!

As your conference Coordinator it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website and hopefully to our NSLDC family.  The Pride Conference was created to provide a  welcoming space for LGBTQA+ student leaders, advisors, and allies to learn leadership tools and skillsets that will motivate them to facilitate the necessary conversations and work that needs to happen on our campuses. Our conference will consist of experiential workshops and dynamic keynote sessions in the hope to provide a supportive environment for LGBQTA+ student leaders and allies to discover their true leadership potential and be affirmed in the space they choose to stand. The Pride Conference seeks further to empower student leaders to create a more accepting, equitable environment, and campus through social action.

At each conference we want to make sure our learning outcomes are always to raise awareness, increase knowledge, and develop skills. At the conclusion of all of our conferences we provide students the opportunity to develop action plans with other colleges and universities to facilitate change on their campuses.  We hope that you are as excited as we are and we hope to see you in New York City or  Chicago.
