Diversity and Inclusion Summit
November 13-14, 2018
This fall the CU System-wide Diversity and Inclusion Summit will be hosted at the CU Boulder campus and is being planned by colleagues from the Boulder, Denver, Anschutz and Colorado Springs campuses.
As part of our continuing work of Making Excellence Inclusive, the Summit is dedicated to exploring and understanding the gap between “intention” and “impact” in order to achieve alignment within our community that honors differences.
Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, author of the best-selling “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? and Other Conversations About Race” will be the Keynote Speaker. Tatum is a sought-after speaker on the topics of racial identity development, race and education, strategies for creating inclusive campus environments, and higher education leadership. Dr. Tatum is also the author of Assimilation Blues: Black Families in a White Community (1987) and has published widely in social science and education journals. In May 2007, Dr. Tatum released Can We Talk About Race?: And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation.
