Diversity Dialogues

The Diversity Dialogues series provides opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to have conversations about relevant issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, social justice, and much more. They are designed to be very informal gatherings allowing participants to educate and learn from one another.

Conversation is the hallmark of community building. The Center of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging wants to help bring the conversations to you - the campus community. To achieve this, we will be hosting these open forum/discussion sessions that offer students, faculty, and staff the chance to share their experiences. While each conversation has a centralized theme, we are very flexible. Participants will determine where the conversations go. This series is meant to emphasize a commitment to community-based learning that encourages all members of the UWRF community to be active participants in these types of conversations.

This series has been adapted to our "Taco Bout it Tuesday" series which aims to discuss similar topics in a more interactive experience.
