There are a few conferences to keep an eye out for in the next year.
Ivy League first-generation conference: 1vyG is an organization at Brown University that is hosting a first-generation student conference primarily for students in the Ivy League from February 27-March 1. Eric Waldo, Executive Director of the First Lady’s Reach Higher Initiative will be one of the speakers during the conference. For more information, check out their website at 1vyg.org.
Class Action first-generation summit: Class Action is an organization that aims to bridge the class divide and one of their focuses is on the first-generation identity. Their one-day summit on March 7 is at Wellesley College and will feature presenters from across the country. The summit is open to all and is still accepting proposals. For more information, go to classism.org.
I will be attending both conferences and will provide updates on both.
