The Hmong Stout Student Organization (HSSO) is a student run organization at the University of Wisconsin – Stout. Established in 1988, HSSO works to provide social, cultural, and academic enrichment to its members and to build relationships with other student organizations, as well as the surrounding community. For over two decades now, HSSO has organized and supported many initiatives to promote diversity awareness on our campus. One of those initiatives that have been held for many years now is the Annual Educational Conference.
The Annual Educational Conference was established to bridge the gap between Hmong and non-Hmong youth on campus and in the community. This year HSSO will be hosting the 24th Annual Educational Conference on Saturday April 10th; the theme will be Weaving Cultures with Success: Integrating Hmong Culture into Mainstream Professions. The conference will consist of motivational speakers/workshops by individuals who have found a way to integrate their culture with their profession. In each seminar, speakers will detail their stories of success and triumph, learn how they have incorporated their culture into their work – and through these stories, HSSO hopes to be able to spark inspiration inside each participant that comes through the conference to be able to integrate their passion with their profession. This is what HSSO hopes you will gain, and this is what the organization hopes to bring to every one of you.
