Welcome to a pivotal gathering of minds and voices, a conference that aims to challenge, inspire, and transform our understanding of "Discrimination, Bias, and Repudiation". Hosted in a dynamic online space, this event brings together a spectrum of scholars, activists, and thought leaders from around the globe.

Our mission? To delve into the complex layers of societal discrimination and bias, unraveling them through a multitude of perspectives and disciplines. From keynote speeches by leading experts to engaging panel discussions and interactive workshops, we are set to explore the intricacies of these pressing issues.

This is more than a conference. It's a movement. A call to action for those who seek to reshape the narrative, to bring forth a future where inclusivity isn't an ideal but a reality. We're bridging gaps, challenging norms, and building a foundation for meaningful change.

Your voice is crucial in this discourse. Your research, your experiences, your insights - they are the pieces we need to complete this complex puzzle. Share your latest work, engage in enriching discussions, and collaborate with fellow visionaries.
