The United Black Students at Ryerson (UBSR) would like to take this moment to inform you of our staple event, the 3rd Annual United Black Students’ Conference; Theme: Awareness Leading to Empowerment & Self-Fulfilment – The journey continues… This event was first brought to fruition back in 2009, 2 years later it still thrives with more momentum than ever!


The event is only 5 days away and we are approaching capacity in terms of registration, so don’t get left out!  The event is set to happen on November 18th to November 20th (Friday to Sunday)!  The event begins on the Friday at 5pm with the Conference Launch (opening ceremony), with food, performances, music from a DJ, and a keynote speech by D’bi Young!  On the Saturday, we host a series of workshops (workshop details in the attached document) which will be held from 8:00am to 3:30pm.  The workshops are followed by the Black Ball Gala at 6pm, which is a semi-formal engagement with a dinner, performances, and a keynote speech by Ricky Neckles!  On Sunday between 10am and 2pm we conclude the entire event with a debrief session, this is an opportunity to network and reflect on the key issues before parting ways.  *For complete details please follow the links.
