The Afghan-American Conference commits to keeping our conference an inclusive and safe environment for all of our participants.

Diversity is essential to our work at AAC. We know our Motherland, and our diaspora, are both incredibly diverse, and that diversity itself enriches the experience of attendees and allows for the full rich tapestry of our community to be present and contributing to the conference and organization. We know that to truly succeed, our space should be representative of our diversity as a community. We know we may fall short, but our goal is to strive and aim higher.
One of the recurring themes that arise during the weekend of our conference is mental health. The importance of mental health is often threaded through our keynotes, S.E.E.D. Talks, sessions, and panels.
As our community bands together to move forward, one stigmatized yet present challenge is maintaining mental wellness both for our loved ones and us.
ANTI-DISCRIMINATION & HARASSMENT
Our policy was established to address issues, including harassment, abuse, and discrimination, that have taken place within AAC. It provides a way for AAC to address these situations and uphold a safe, supportive, empowered, and engaged community. It applies to all members of the conference and individuals that attend an AAC event or engage in conversations on AAC’s virtual platforms. We are currently finalizing a revised and more comprehensive Code of Conduct policy that will be released shortly.
