Please join us for the 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) will sponsor its 11th annual Diversity Challenge at Boston College October 28-29, 2011. This year’s focus is 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 last year and 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.
We invite you to join us by submitting a proposal that seeks to address intersecting identities from multiple frameworks. Practitioners, educators, and researchers are invited to pose questions or describe interventions that bring together intersecting social or psychosocial identities in challenging ways or to address questions of identity that merit greater attention in some domain of society. Proposals should address race or ethnic culture and at least some aspect of one of the other psychosocial identities, gender and sexual orientation, that are the theme of this year's Diversity Challenge. Our goal is to engage participants in broadening the dialogue about intersecting social and psychosocial identities in ways that matter to individuals and society.
Access the full Call for Proposals which includes a more thorough description of the conference, suggestions for proposals, and submission forms. The Proposal Submission Deadline is April 15, 2011.
This year we are delighted to offer easy online proposal submission allowing you to enter your proposal information, forms, abstract information, and upload your proposal in one step. To enter your proposal online, please click Enter Online Proposal.
