Critical Conversations Diversity Conference

Critical Conversations Diversity Conference
April 10-12, 2017
North Dakota State University, Fargo

NDSU will be hosting a Critical Conversations Diversity Conference on Monday to Wednesday, April 10-12, 2017. This year's conference will focus on three topics: "The Dakota Access Pipeline"; "Poverty, Adversity and Race"; and "Unifying Our Voices". "Critical Conversations" was created to further understand the various issues surrounding race and diversity, provide a venue for "voices" to be heard, and to determine our roles and responsibilities in creating positive social change. We realize that these conversations can be difficult as there are many perspectives, privileges, and needs we all possess. At the same time, the organizers believe that it is imperative to have these conversations (in as many places as possible) to begin the transformational process of individual understanding, growth, and our ability to create change. The organizers of, "Critical Conversations" acknowledge the complexity and multitude of diversity issues and that we do not have all the answers. To guide us along our journey, we invited three well-known speakers that offer their own unique perspectives on various issues surrounding diversity. The speakers will challenge us to think more broadly while helping us to commit to lifelong learning and activism. To learn more, please visit https://www.ndsu.edu/mu/critical_conversations/
