Virtual Diversity Forum Showcases Authors on Racism and Dignity
The UW–Madison 2020 Diversity Forum will be held virtually this year on October 27–28, 8:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m. This year’s forum, The Pandemic Effect: Exposing Racism and Inequities, will explore a convergence of contemporary issues—from racial equity and social justice to disparities in health care and white privilege—during two full days of speakers and interactive sessions. The keynote speakers will be best-selling authors Robin DiAngelo, Ph.D., and Austin Channing Brown, both of whom write about sociology and the impact of race and race relations. Hosted by the Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement, the event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, visit go.wisc.edu/df20.
