Academic institutions have embraced principles of equity as a core value underpinning their mission. But what do we mean by equity and diversity?
Can we have diversity but neglect inclusion? Do we have any blind spots on who we embrace under the equity, diversity and inclusion tent? How do we know who we have missed if our ability to measure diversity is varied? How do we inspire and sustain broad support for initiatives in this area?
Join us as four thought leaders on equity and inclusion address these questions and more.
