RCR Forum: Maintaining the Momentum Towards a More Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Duke (GS715.01)

Thursday, January 28, 2021
5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Maintaining the Momentum Towards a More Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Duke:
Challenges and opportunities in advancing racial equity in a post-election environment

Duke has ambitious goals around creating and maintaining a racially equitable university community so that all members can thrive and we maximize excellence in teaching, learning and working.  But the world we live in is deeply polarized and that same polarization exists at Duke even though our values are clear. What strategies and tools can we employ in order to achieve our goals relative to diversity, equity and inclusion in a context that is full of complexities?

This event is also part of The Graduate School's Race and Bias Conversations series.
