January 26: A Conversation for, by, and About Black Faculty, Staff & Administrators in Colorado

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Denver will host a series of panels during their annual Diversity Summit, titled: A Conversation for, by, and About Black Faculty, Staff & Administrators.

University of Denver’s 2018 Diversity Summit will focus on the intersections of social justice and sustainability. Framed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, this year’s summit will provide opportunities for self-reflection, discussions, and actions that support inclusive, just and sustainable communities.

While previous summits have focused on building awareness and inspiring action around topics of diversity and inclusion, this year’s focus will merge these themes with those from the Sustainability Summit, emphasizing the overlaps between environmental and social justice work. As we learned during events like Flint and Standing Rock, environmental disaster is often caused and exacerbated by deep social inequalities – and vice versa. We must stand together to address challenges of diversity and sustainability through a social justice lens.
