On Friday, April 12, representatives from across the University will gather to discuss diversity and inclusion at the 2013 Diversity Conference: “Our Differences, Our Strength.
This year’s theme will explore how diversity can be a source of strength in the academic community. Workshops throughout the day will challenge conference attendees to think of ways to foster innovation through diversity, enhance inclusion practices, and transform points of controversy into positive interactions.
Lani Guinier, civil rights attorney and the first tenured African-American woman professor at Harvard University, will give the keynote address to open the conference.
In its fourth year, the conference aims to build a more welcoming and supportive University community. Visit www.rochester.edu/diversity/annualconference/2013, for details and to register. The conference is free and open to the public.
