The Office for Institutional Diversity and the University’s Human Resources division will present the fourth annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit on May 22 in Gasson 100 from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.  

Reflecting the social justice imperative inherent in Boston College’s Jesuit, Catholic heritage, this year’s summit, titled “Transformational Dialogue,” invites faculty and staff to participate in bold and inclusive conversations, interactive sessions, and shared storytelling that will encourage and promote transformative and self-reflective dialogue, according to organizers. This experience, they add, can enable meaningful change and build sustainable relationships across differences at the summit and beyond.  

The 2019 summit will feature talks by Zareen Araoz, a part-time faculty member in the Carroll School of Management, and Boston College School of Social Work Professor for Macro Practice Tiziana Dearing, who will provide an interactive style of presentation to encourage participation among participants. 

Registration and additional information is available at the Office for Institutional Diversity website.
