APIDA Leadership Retreat
Saturday, April 17th 2021
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Event Location: OnlineJoin Event
The Office of Multicultural Services and Programs (MSP) is conducting a one-day Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Leadership Retreat on Saturday, April 17th via Zoom. Our records indicate that you self-identify as Asian/Asian American student at UGA. The APIDA Leadership retreat is designed for all Asian/Asian American UGA undergraduate students. The retreat was created in Fall 2015 with the goal of supporting self-identified APIDA students in their learning of self as student leaders and as racialized individuals through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This year, we are planning to serve APIDA undergraduate students through this retreat virtually. Since this is a highly attended retreat, we encourage you to register and stay committed about your attendance. The deadline to register is Friday, April 16, 2021.
The planning committee for this retreat has incorporated several racial identity development and leadership development models to strengthen the participants’ learning of “self” as leaders. These models include Kim’s Asian American Identity Development Model, Social Change Model, and Theory of Self-authorship. Last year, 71% of our participants reported their personal definitions of leadership had evolved after attending this event and 86% shared that they gained new insights and knowledge about individuals apart of the APIDA population in the American history.
This year the retreat aims to continue the work of strengthening the leadership skills for its participants but also creating opportunities and dialogue about how to empower its community inside and out with allyship. The keynote speaker is Meg Sunga of the In Re:trospeQtpodcast where subject matter ranges from identity development, social injustices and intersectionality.
We really look forward to your participation! If you have any questions about the retreat or if you need any additional information, please contact Gia Santiago at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jalen Youmans at email@example.com.More Details
