Unity in Diversity Days, a two-day program, is now in its fourth semester and is sponsored by the President’s Initiative on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The program features a diverse group of scholars, artists and advocates, designed to broaden and deepen our understanding of systemic inequalities with a focus on such current issues, including the housing crisis, climate justice and health disparities.

Additionally, speakers will share knowledge and strategies, designed to enhance our awareness and ability to come to terms with privilege and to move beyond “call out” and “cancel culture” to foster accountability while building communities rooted in intersectional justice.

Join us on Tuesday, April 5, and Wednesday, April 6, 2022, for a virtual two-day event offering rich programming on diversity, equity and inclusion.
