On behalf of the AHEAD board of directors and staff, I am excited to welcome you to Baltimore for the 2024 Equity & Excellence Annual Conference! The conference is sure to have ample opportunities to make connections with colleagues from around the world, recharge, learn best practices, and celebrate outstanding contributors to our field. We hope you will enjoy hearing from our plenary speaker, Keri Gray. As CEO of the Keri Gray Consulting Group, LLC, she will reflect on her lived experience at the intersection or race and disability.
If this is your first AHEAD conference, welcome! Please take the opportunity to meet and get to know other colleagues in the field. If you have attended past AHEAD conferences, I hope that you find opportunities to catch up with familiar faces, make time to share wisdom with our new professionals, and reignite your “why” you do the work.
We appreciate all you do to promote equity and access on your campus. Thank you for your support of AHEAD, and we look forward to seeing you in Baltimore.
