From Intention to Action: A National Conversation on Diversity Equity and Inclusion

LANSING, Mich. - Join LCC’s Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Tonya Bailey as she leads panelists from around the country for “From Intention to Action: A National Conversation on Diversity Equity and Inclusion.” The virtual event will be held 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 8 via Webex. All are invited.

The conversation will take a deep dive into actionable strategies to help move the needle on DEI and accessibility at institutions of higher education. Explore topics like:

  • What is diversity, really, and why does it matter?
  • What are some mistakes to avoid when implementing programs and changes at your campus?
  • How have institutions been able to make changes and implement action plans collegewide?

While the conversation will center on higher education, information will be valuable for all those working to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in their respective organizations.
