NCDRL Proposal Submission Guidelines

Each year, the NCDRL planning committee requests session proposals from our contacts with a background and extensive knowledge on the topics of diversity, race, inclusion and (un)learning. It is a chance for such individuals to share their findings and best practices with other practitioners, academics, HR professionals, those in government, etc. during this national conference that averages more than 500 participants each year. Session proposals will be considered for the Main Day (day 2) conference line-up.

Proposals are accepted each year, November 1 through the second week in January prior to the conference date. Proposals for NCDRL will not be accepted prior to November 1 or after the second week in January.

Please review the proposal guidelines prior to submitting your proposal. All questions should be submitted via email at ncdrl@osu.edu.
