BOOM: Building on our Momentum is a learning conference featuring a series of events centered on the experience of conversation and community engagement. Sessions are designed by members of the community for the entire community and will meet participants where they are in their learning and comfort in engaging in sessions on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our diversity shines brightest when we bring our full selves together as one community. BOOM is a moment where we can come together as one community to think deeply and collectively about how we engage with each other.

Understand difference. Ask hard questions. Plan to act.

Open-Mic: Bridges / Not Walls 

While we try cope with the January elections and the harmful rhetoric promoting 'the wall', the International Students Organizing Committee (ISOC) believes its essential to listen to individual voices.  ISOC has arranged an open mic for the public (international + domestic)  in collaboration with the Spanish, Latina O/X & Latin American Studies Department.

Come talk about 'Bridges/ not Walls' through poetry, songs or monologues, in the language you prefer (your mother tongues are strongly encouraged). The open mic is a prelude to the BOOM! conference at Mount Holyoke.

Please sign up with this google form if you are interested on performing, we will limit this form to 15 performers but we will have space for others if time permits:
