Event description

Description

The Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement presents the 4th Annual Diversity Summit: Embracing Diversity and Inclusion at GW!

Join us for workshops, lectures, panels, and poster presentations on a variety of diversity-related topics, including race and racism, bias, sexuality and gender, and religion, faith, spirituality, and beliefs, and more.

The Diversity Summit aims to create a space for attendees to engage in critical, thoughtful, and challenging dialogue to inform how we understand ourselves, the larger landscape of higher education, and ways to continue building the most inclusive campus climates on individual and communal levels.

We invite attendees to bring their full selves into the space in order to think in deeper and more complex ways about these foci areas.
