The annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit is a full-day conference addressing pressing issues related to diversity and inclusion at Boston College and in the higher education field.
Diversity and Inclusion Summit: Towards Inclusive Excellence
Wednesday, May 20, 2020
The 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Summit invited faculty and staff to participate in a full day of learning, conversation, growth, and reflection. This year’s Summit featured didactic concurrent morning sessions on diverse topics paired alongside afternoon workshops focused on skill-building to bridge the gap between knowledge and action.
Boston College welcomed keynote speaker Dr. Damon A. Williams, one of the founding architects of the “Inclusive Excellence Model” and a celebrated authority on diversity, equity, and inclusion to facilitate the event.
Beginning in May 2016, the Office for Institutional Diversity (OID) has hosted the annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit, which takes place as a full-day conference on campus. The Summit typically includes opening remarks and a keynote speaker address, a panel of speakers, and individual break-out sessions exhibiting diversity and inclusion initiatives in higher education and on campus.
