Jan. 19, 2016
Nina Davuluri will keynote the March 26 Women's Conference at CSUF.
Congressman Ed Royce announced Jan. 13 that former Miss America Nina Davuluri will deliver the keynote address at his eighth annual Women's Conference.
The event, held in conjunction with the California State University, Fullerton's Philanthropic Foundation, will take place at CSUF on March 26. "Nina not only won the Miss America scholarship contest, she also showed a phenomenal amount of poise in the face of adversity after her victory," Royce stated in a press release.
"I look forward to Nina joining my constituents at this year's Women's Conference to discuss issues we both share a passion for: making sure more girls are STEM educated and celebrating cultural diversity."
Over the course of the Davuluri’s year of service as Miss America, she logged approximately 250,000 miles traveling across the country to address an array of audiences on her platform: “Celebrating Diversity through Cultural Competency.”
As part of her consciousness-raising efforts on behalf of diversity, Davuluri also launched a social media campaign, Circles of Unity, to encourage constructive and civil dialogue on diversity issues.
