Confident Conversations was a three-part, all-member virtual event designed to give all Kappa Delta members tangible ways to bring sisters, friends and family together to discuss issues.
In the all-new educational speaker series, Kappa Delta is working to help empower our sisters to impact their communities. Confident Conversations will focus on building brave relationships, engaging in civil dialogue, and developing skills that empower us to make an impact in our communities.
