Ijeoma Oluo will be the keynote speaker at the University of Washington Bothell’s fourth annual Equity and Inclusion Conference.

Oluo is a Seattle-based writer, speaker and editor-at-large at The Establishment, a media platform funded and run by women. She was named one of the most influential people in Seattle by Seattle Magazine as one of the city’s strongest voices for social justice on economic, racial, sexual and gender issues, according to a press release.

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.
