How Do You Teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?

As you’re preparing for our annual conference, please consider being part of the lightning roundtable: “How Do You Teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?”  The roundtable will be a forum in which panelists—and audience--will share best practices.  The idea is for panelists to share an assignment in a lightning round in which each will have three to five minutes to present (depending on number of participants).  The session is a good way for people to try out a new topic that they can turn into something more substantial.  They then can fine tune based on feedback. 

 

Submit the assignment title with a brief description of the assignment and an upload of your handout(s). (You may revise handout(s) later, if desired.) Be certain handout includes your name, university/affiliation (no abbreviations), and presentation title.  Save as a Word document using Times New Roman 12-point font.

Sharing your handouts is a great service to our colleagues and business communication.  We now have an archive of handouts from previous conferences.  You can find that here: https://tinyurl.com/ABCResouresDiversity. Being published online in this way is also a nice additional benefit for you. 

 

As we did last year, we’ll ask you to prerecord your presentations and upload those, along with your transcripts, by September 15.  But we’ll still want and need you there to be part of the discussion.  That worked out really beautifully last year.
