ISPRC's 11th Annual Diversity Challenge:  Intersections of Race or Ethnic Culture with Gender or Sexual Orientation

Under the direction of Dr. Janet E. Helms, the Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture (ISPRC) sponsored its 11th annual Diversity Challenge at Boston College October 28-29, 2011. This year’s focus was the intersections of race or ethnic culture with gender or sexual orientation. The conference has increased in popularity over the years, drawing over 300 participants hosting more than 80 different sessions allowing scholars, practitioners, educators, community activists and policy makers a forum to extend the dialogue to address some of the unanswered questions from very different perspectives. 

Featured presenters included:

  • Jean Lau Chin, Ed.D. - Adelphi University
  • Beverly Greene, Ph.D. - St. John's University
  • Janet E. Helms, Ph.D. - Boston College
  • Maryam Jernigan, Ph.D. - Yale University
  • Lisa Paler, Ph.D. - Kingsborough Community College

  • Leyla Perez-Gualdron, Ph.D. - University of San Francisco
  • V. Paul Poteat, Ph.D. - Boston College
  • Y. Joel Wong, Ph.D. - Indiana University

The topics included in this year's workshops, individual presentations, symposia, structured discussions, and posters proved to be an exciting, thought provoking, and meaningful experience for all who attended.
