SUBJECT: Annual Diversity Summit Nov. 2-3
As Chancellor and Provost, we would like to invite the campus community to join us for the 16th annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit, "Expanding Our Minds: Encompassing Diversity and Practicing Inclusion" on Nov. 2-3.
Hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement and the chancellor's advisory committees, the Diversity and Inclusion Summit is one of the most important campus gatherings we have all year. The sessions are both educational and exploratory and will offer a view of diversity beyond the most common definitions, highlighting the research, talents and insights of faculty, students and staff.
New for this year, the Diversity and Inclusion Summit has established a way for employee participation to be recorded in PeopleSoft. Before attending a session, participants can check in at the summit desk in the Glenn Miller Ballroom to have their attendance recorded. Each session is categorized as plenary, participatory, student sessions, inclusion building, or skill-building/professional development. Many campus departments will accept diversity summit attendance as a diversity training requirement and participants who attend one event of each session type will receive a certificate of achievement.
The keynote speaker, Luoluo Hong, is the vice chancellor for student affairs at the University of Hawaii and a nationally recognized expert on violence prevention. She will speak on Tuesday, Nov. 2 at 9 a.m. in the University Memorial Center Glenn Miller Ballroom about gender and gender violence and its intersection with race, class and other social identities, and how to prevent gender violence on college campuses.
Plenary sessions include "Viewing Religion Using Sociological 'Lenses': Beyond Us vs. Them" by Philip Piket, professor emeritus of sociology; "Privilege and Activism" by sociology Professor Joanne Belknap and "Conflict Transformation in the Inclusive Environment" by communication Professor Stan Deetz. Piket speaks on Nov. 2 from 1:30 to 3 p.m., Belknap on Nov. 3 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and Deetz on Nov. 3 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. All three plenary sessions will be in the UMC center ballroom.
A performance by the Interactive Theater Project, titled "Rise up!" on Nov. 3 from 12:20-1:20 p.m. in the UMC center ballroom will address how to respond to hate when it occurs in one's presence or nearby.
