How do our various identities, such as gender, sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and more, affect our experiences in the world? 

Explore these questions at North Idaho College's Diversity Symposium beginning at 9:00 am on April 16, 2019. The day-long event features keynote speaker and Pulitzer Center grantee photographer Daniella Zalcman.

Zalcman will discuss her ongoing project, "Signs of Your Identity: Forced Assimilation Education for Indigenous Youth," a portrait series of survivors of Indian Residential Schools. Her project received the 2017 Arnold Newman Prize, a 2017 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, the 2016 FotoEvidence Book Award, the 2016 Magnum Foundation's Inge Morath Award, and is part of Open Society Foundation's Moving Walls 24.

The documentary photographer also is the founder and director of Women Photograph, an initiative working to elevate the voices of female and non-binary visual journalists.

Space is limited for this free event. Reserve your seat today. For more information visit North Idaho College's Diversity page
