Equity Cloth Bag Series: Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue – A Three-part Conversation to Effect Change on the UM-Flint Campus
Tuesday, February 16
In the introduction to his book “What If? Short Stories to Spark Diversity Dialogue”, Stephen Long- Nguyen Robbins states the following: “I ask you to use two powerful words that we all should consider using more often: What if?"
What if we start that diversity dialogue right here, right now? The conversations will be difficult but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be having them. Be a part of the conversation – help us strive toward a more inclusive campus environment. Co-Sponsored by CAPS, the ICC, International Center, the LGBT Center, SIL, Student Success Center, TCLT, and the WEC.
