Smith, a recognized speaker and educator within the LGBTQ+ community, will present "Now is Our Time: Creating Change across Difference."   This talk will challenge attendees to critically self-reflect on our privilege and ally behaviors and to acknowledge the part each person plays in improving campus climate and making sustainable change.

Smith, a gay, Christian, woman of color, works with LGBTQ+ students to cultivate and engage campus constituents. She holds both a bachelor's and master's degree from West Chester University and spent more than 10 years working in student affairs.
