Diversity Dialogues

The Diversity Dialogue Series is a forum to allow participants to understand and discuss a wide range of topics from local and global perspectives. It focuses on participants heightening their awareness, becoming comfortable in engaging in intersectional dialogue, and utilizing the education learned to expand beyond their cultural competency to the action of social justice. It is led by experts in the field and is open to students, staff, faculty, and community members.

The virtual program offered on March 25, 2021 The Impact of Race Related Trauma led by Dr. LaVonya Bennett provided participants an understanding of how trauma is caused and influenced by racial identity. Participants gained an understanding of the lived experiences of people of color around trauma and healing.
