Diversity and Inclusion Speakers

With rapidly changing demographics, the world is becoming more diverse.The human condition is improved when we hear from underrepresented voices. Diversity is more than just boxes checked on an application or census form. The intersectionality of social identities contributes to discrimination and disadvantages for anyone with one or more marginalized status. These speakers help audiences navigate the impact on campus, in the community and in the workplace.
