The annual Boston College Diversity and Inclusion Summit—which brings together administrators, faculty, and staff to learn about promoting and sustaining an inclusive environment as well as personal and organizational actionable strategies for change—will be held on May 24.

Registration begins Monday, April 3, for the summit, which this year is organized around the theme of “Power of Community: Growing Our Capacity for Compassionate Belonging.” To register, go to the Office for Institutional Diversity website, which provides details on the summit’s events and activities.

A highlight of the summit will be the return of Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington as keynote speaker. Rev. Dr. Washington is president and founder of the Washington Consulting Group, named by The Economist as one of the Top 10 Global Diversity Consultants in the world. He currently serves as the pastor of Unity Fellowship Church of Baltimore and is an elder in the Unity Fellowship Church Movement. For more than 36 years, he has worked as an educator, administrator, and consultant in higher education, working with an extensive list of corporate, nonprofit, government, and faith organization clients.

Posters and exhibits that showcase learning in action and cultivating a culture of inclusion are currently being accepted; for information on submissions, contact
