Symposium Theme and Goal
This year’s Symposium theme is Diversity and Inclusion in Times of Crisis. The global disruption of everyday life caused by the coronavirus pandemic disproportionately strained, as nation-wide crises do, the most vulnerable groups in society. Our symposium will consider strategies, challenges, and best practices for addressing the needs of the most vulnerable in higher- learning environments in the midst of crisis, as well as ideas for keeping issues of diversity & inclusion at the forefront of research and teaching agendas in an increasingly virtual world. We hope this event will create a safe, and brave space for individuals and groups within the FSU community to discuss issues surrounding diversity, inclusion, and equity. More importantly, we want attendees and participants to walk away from the event with tangible ways to incorporate diversity and inclusion in their research projects and teaching methods.
Date and Location
The symposium will take place on Thursday, September 17 (1-5pm), and Friday, September 18 (9am-2:30pm) 2020, virtually via Zoom.
