Logo for the 2023 CCTS Spring Conference. Three black human figures of different heights stand on white ladders of different heights so that all the figures' heads are at the same equitable height. In the background are the silhouettes of mountains in shades of blue, suggesting Appalachia. Above the human figures, white text reads "Translating Equity into Action", with the UK CCTS Logo in white at the very top. At the bottom of the image, white text reads "18th Annual CCTS Spring Conference: March 27, 2023"
