Cal Poly Pomona will host its annual 3D Leadership Conference with Oscar-winner Dustin Lance Black as the keynote speaker on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Bronco Student Center.
This year’s theme, “Capture your Passion,” will encourage student leaders to discover and strengthen their leadership styles in order to spread that knowledge to the campus community.
Keynote speaker Dustin Lance Black, who won Best Original Screenplay for “Milk,” is a model of capturing one’s passion through his success as a screenwriter, producer and director. Graduating with honors from UCLA’s School of Film and Television, Black also was executive producer for “Milk,” which was about the first openly gay elected official in the United States. Black also writes for HBO’s “Big Love,” an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated series about a polygamist family in Utah.
The all-day conference also includes 12 workshops about leadership skills, community service, discovering one’s passion, resume building and student activism.
Black’s keynote address, which begins at 1 p.m. in Ursa Major, is open to the public. The conference workshops are for students and require pre-registration.
The pre-registration deadline is Nov. 11. For more information or to register, visit http://dsa.cpp.edu/division/leadership/3D.asp.
