The NIC Diversity Symposium on April 16, 2019 is a day filled with discussion, presentation and displays connected to the college's diversity theme (Cultural Identity for 2018-2020) and the common read (currently Sebastian Junger's Tribe). Attendees are invited to attend one or all of these free sessions as this year's symposium investigates the question "What Is Cultural Identity?" Presenters will speak about the ways in which our various identities (gender, sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, etc.) affect our expreiences in the world.

Keynote speaker Daniella Zalcman will discuss her ongoing project, Signs of Your Identity, a portrait series of survivors of Canadian Indian Residential Schools. The project received the 2017 Arnold Newman Prize, a 2017 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, the 2016 FotoEvidence Book Award, the 2016 Magnum Foundation's Inge Morath Award, and is part of Open Society Foundation's Moving Walls 24.

A full schedule of the symposium will be available shortly. For more information visit NIC's Diversity page!
