Intent vs. Impact: Improving Inclusive Interactions

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. UMC
Too often, diversity and inclusion experts hear about individuals or groups receiving well-intended communication from others that leads to unwanted or harmful impact. This dynamic can play a key role in leaving individuals or groups feeling divided—and in preventing our progress as an inclusive community. The goal of the spring Diversity and Inclusion Summit is to continue work to bridge this gap and lessen the divide between intent and impact.
