DIRECTO's 3rd Annual Spring Conversation Series

DIRECTO, The Diversity & Inclusion in Research & Teaching Organization, will be holding its 3rd Annual Spring Conversation Series. Each of these events is held virtually via Zoom, free of charge, and is open to all FSU students, faculty, staff, post doctorals, alumni, and members of the surrounding community.

Topics & registration links for each event is provided below. You may register for and attend all, or a portion, of each event!

Spring Conversation Series Goal

We hope these events will create a “brave-space” for individuals and groups within the FSU and surrounding community to discuss issues surrounding diversity, inclusion, and equity. More importantly, we want attendees and participants to walk away from each event with tangible ways to incorporate diversity and inclusion in their research projects and teaching methods.

Date and Location

Each of the Conversation events in the Conversation Series will take place from 11:45am-1:30pm, via Zoom, on the following four dates: Friday, 2/19, Friday, 3/19, and Friday, 4/16, and Friday, 5/21. You may register to attend all, or a portion of, these events.


Presentations will be designed in formats conducive to encouraging conversation and participation on issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity, with specific attention given to how these concepts relate to topics in teaching and/or research.
