GSA Conference 2018!

We owe many thanks to everyone who played a role in making this an awesome day! From our workshop presenters to our volunteers, keynote speaker Rae Spoon, to the fabulous performances of Rouge Fatale & Friends, we couldn’t provide inspiration, ideas and connections for GSAs without you!
