Do You Even Know Me?: How Genuine Curiosity Destroys Apathy
presented by James Robilotta
Curiosity creates community but small talk is painful, so what are we supposed to do? Conferences are filled with opportunities to authentically connect with someone who can help validate our values, consider a new way of thinking, and reflect about the role we play in the world around us. In this hysterical and motivational keynote we will talk about how to ask better questions, change the way we hear people’s stories and insights, and apply what we learn from others. And that starts right here at this event, so let’s laugh, learn, and get a little more curious together.
The Friday Keynote is supported by the Circle of Sisterhood Foundation.

What do we mean, “Values-Based Organizations”? Race, class, gender, and sexuality in Fraternity and Sorority Life presented by Victoria Alexander
Fraternities and sororities have a long and storied history. Some aspects are positive and worth accolades. Others are marked by exclusion, hate, and vitriol. We can’t tell the stories of our organizations or fully understand our groups without a full picture of the history of race, class, gender, and sexuality in fraternity and sorority life. Let’s move past the information on the website and in the new member education pamphlet and start addressing the challenges that prevent generating welcoming and affirmative spaces for all students who seek membership in fraternities and sororities.

The Extraordinary Art of Caring (When No One Else Seems to Give a F*ck) presented by Casey J. Cornelius
Does it seem like folks don’t really care anymore? Common decency is lacking, attendance is low, and even leadership positions are going unfilled. There must be a way of re-energizing our members-and ourselves-to have more passion and empathy.
There is. And it starts with CARE.
Casey J. Cornelius has been a leading voice with topics moving the needle on college campuses and in large organizations for years. Now he is turning his attention to one of the most pressing concerns of our day: enthusiasm fatigue. Casey wants to help individuals and groups recapture the love of membership, friendship, and service by blending a message of mindset and strategy. The art of caring, he says, is extraordinary and needs to be connected to long-term goals, habits, and daily choices.
In our complicated, challenging world, what we need is care. And we need it now!
