Manhattanville’s DEI Council launched our first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Conference on Monday August 23, 2021. Building upon the work that was started throughout the 2020-2021 Academic Year, the council hosted a mandatory conference addressing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) topics The focus of this year’s conference was: Building a Racially Competent Community.
The conference included a morning panel discussion examining internal and external factors impacting diversity education; followed by a number of concurrent sessions. The afternoon began with a presentation highlighting Manhattanville data related to the experiences of our underrepresented students, with additional concurrent sessions. The conference concluded with highlights of Manhattanville’s DEI efforts and updates from the community.
These educational opportunities are a giant step towards building a sustained culture of respect, inclusion and equity on our campus. I look forward to your participation!
