Diversity Dialogues is a series of conversations led by a faculty or staff member, student, or invited guest. These events allow participants to engage in critical dialogue about topics such as intersecting social identities, privilege, oppression, and social justice. These dialogues are a safe space to discuss these topics from a local and global perspective.
