CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action
March 31, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The City University of New York (CUNY) is pleased to announce its third biennial Faculty Diversity and Inclusion Conference at the CUNY Graduate Center on Friday, March 31, 2017. The theme is CUNY at the Crossroads: Diversity and Intersectionality in Action.
Intersectionality is a timely theme as our global society wrestles with the reality of multiple identities and a range of experiences. To realize the promise of true equity and inclusion, we hope to move to a mindset that builds understanding and respects difference without fear. New knowledge is created through sharing, listening, challenging, and reflecting. The 2017 conference will provide a platform for research and best practices within the University community, research that can be thought provoking, improves our curriculum and offers inspiration as we work to bring out the best in our students. This knowledge helps the University provide a richer learning experience for students, a better teaching and research experience for faculty, and a more productive working experience for faculty and staff as we hold ourselves accountable for change.
