What Does it Mean to Be Here, Now?

The Academy for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion provides open, facilitated conversations around current events through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion on a continuous basis. Each interactive Zoom-based session invites participants to practice listening strategies, to reflect on, and to verbalize how current events are, or might impact climate and culture in their own respective areas of the institution.
