The Diversity and Inclusion Track

Presented by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee 

About the Program

This is a two-part panel with the first hour focusing on diversity fatigue from the viewpoint of diversity, equity, and inclusion professionals highlighting their own exhaustion while simultaneously motivating others to hone their awareness of diversity issues. The second part focuses on how to make a meaningful contribution to diversity, equity, and inclusion as a member of a traditionally non-diverse community. 

You Will Learn

  • About the experiences of diversity professionals in combating their own fatigue while motivating others who may be tired of hearing about diversity
  • How to have effective conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • How to get involved in diversity efforts and effect change in society regardless of your own personal identity 

Who Should Attend

Diversity professionals interested in dealing with diversity fatigue; non-diverse individuals who are interested in making a meaningful contribution to diversity efforts; anyone interested in diversity, equity, and inclusion; anyone who wants to learn more about the experiences of those who work in the diversity, equity, and inclusion space.
