The Diversity Dialogues series began in the previous academic year as part of the action plan for the recommendations of the Task Force for Racial Equality, bringing together the university community to discuss ways to address racism and inequality. The series this spring continues to address these issues as well as diversity across multiple groups - and intersections between identities.
