2015 Diversity Summit, November 10-11

The CU-Boulder 21st Diversity and Inclusion Summit
November 10-11, 2015 in the UMC

Building the Road Map: Diversity and Inclusion at CU, Boulder and Beyond

As the Building the Road Map: Diversity and Inclusion at CU, Boulder and Beyond theme indicates, the Diversity and inclusion Summit is intended to create a continuous learning and interactive experience for all CU-Boulder and surrounding communities, including students, staff and faculty, as well as the City of Boulder and Boulder County employees. The Summit experience should extend into the daily lives of community members and go beyond the two-day November event. 

For the upcoming Summit, the Planning Committee invites proposals from all campus, city and county participants that encourage and sustain ongoing diversity and inclusion learning activities.  The Committee is interested in proposals that offer practical guidance that begins at the Summit and extends into other day-to-day contexts and beyond the time while at the university or employment in the city and county. 

The Summit Planning Committee strongly encourages proposals that:

  • Model interactions that can be replicated in various settings now and in the future;
  • Institutionalize inclusiveness work so that it becomes integrated into the community’s values and practices, rather than relying on the work of  a few;
  • Promote novel interactions across groups;
  • Inspire discussions leading to actionable outcomes
  • Challenge conventional thinking about diversity and inclusion

Be a part of “going beyond.” Complete the online form here. You will be asked for a 100-word abstract and actionable next steps that “Go Beyond.”

Proposal Deadline: July 22, 2015.
