2021 Diversity and Inclusion Conference

The 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Conference: Awakening to Action was held on October 21 and October 22, 2021. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic magnified existing societal inequities across marginalized groups; an increased awareness of targeted violence galvanized communities around social justice; and legislation aimed at restricting well-earned civil rights demonstrated that the struggle for equal rights continues. The theme of the 2021 DLC Conference, Awakening to Action, represents a call to action for the presenters and attendees to transform the momentum of 2020 into sustained action.

Participants explored a range of subjects at this year’s 2-day virtual conference with topics ranging from developing alumni groups around identity to the first amendment and inclusion on campus.
