Registration is now open! The CEW+ Advocacy Symposium returns in person on Sept. 21 at the Michigan League to bring together staff, faculty, students and community members to create change through introspection, dialogue and action.

The symposium features a keynote lecture by Dr. Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, founding director of Women Advocates Research and Documentation Center and executive board member of the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding and the Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund.

Attendees will participate in workshops and roundtable discussions that highlight relevant U-M resources, offer professional development skill-building, and showcase the advocacy journeys of diverse speakers.
