2015 Diversity Summit, November 10-12


The CU-Boulder 20th Diversity and Inclusion Summit
November 11-12, 2014 in the UMC

2014 marks several significant civil rights anniversaries

  • 60th commemoration of Brown v The Board of Education where the Supreme Court declared state laws establishing separate public school for black and white students to be unconstitutional
  • 50th commemoration of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act that outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin
  • 40th anniversary of the implementation of Keyes v. Denver School District No. I which ruled for desegregation of all DPS schools

These decisions and acts along with the 1965 Voting Rights Act and Fair Housing Act in 1968, helped establish the legal foundation for equity for all Americans. To honor this monumental legal shift in America, the 2014 Diversity and Inclusion Summit continues “Building the Road Map” that we hope will lead to achieving equity for all.
