SAVE THE DATE
2018 Diversity Summit
Peace, Justice and Inclusive Communities

Please plan to join us for the 17th annual Diversity Summit
Thursday and Friday, January 25-26, 2018

In previous summits, sessions have principally focused on bringing awareness about diversity and inclusion topics and inspiring action toward making a difference. This year, the Diversity Summit will join forces with the Sustainability Summit linking social justice and sustainability efforts. Sessions will demonstrate the vital links between social justice and sustainable practices and movements, under the theme “Peace, Justice & Inclusive Communities.” Supporting this theme, the Summit will focus on two key areas: Reduced Inequalities and Sustainable Cities and Communities. The theme was derived from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For these opportunities to be harnessed and goals met – our involvement is crucial. Join us this year.
Keynote Speakers will include:

Dr. Dorceta Taylor
A Voice for Equity and Justice In the Environmental Movement

Mr. Nick Tilsen
“Nick Tilsen Is Building a $60 Million Sustainable Community on an Indian Reservation”

We will be accepting workshop proposals now until November 8th.

Questions can be directed to: diversitysummit@du.edu
