The conference, presented in partnership with T-Mobile, will be held Feb. 23 on the UW Bothell campus. Speakers will lead enrichment sessions and constructive conversations to challenge and explore ideas, build skills and advocate change.

The conference includes the Create the Change student competition, the release states. Groups of UW Bothell students will compete for up to $5,000 from T-Mobile to carry out a project in the areas of equity and inclusion. The winning group also receives mentoring from T-Mobile leaders.
