Beyond Love
Cultural Proficiency Conference 

"The Theme of the Cultural Proficiency Conference 2022 is Beyond Love because as individuals and, as a society, we need to move to the higher echelons that demonstrate our love for one another in actions and deeds." - Simone Charles, Cultural Proficiency Director, ACSA Region 16
