Limited Capacity seats available

This session is a roundtable that seeks to answer the question, what does “inclusion” (as opposed to “diversity”) look like when practiced by LaGuardia’s staff and faculty? How do we go from diversity in theory to inclusion in practice in the work that we do? What are proven, effective strategies that we can share to improve the experiences between colleagues, as well as the experiences of the students we serve?

To address this, faculty and staff participants will share successes and challenges they have experienced with regard to inclusion, as well as opportunities they see in their respective positions on campus to effect change. Followed by a Q&A, the roundtable (20-25 mins) will emphasize the following:
  • Reflections of challenges with diversity and inclusion in the workplace;
  • Strategies for creating inclusive classrooms, events, and spaces for students;
  • Effective practices of inclusion within institutional settings.
Participants also seek to preview and promote FSOC’s upcoming efforts to collect data and coordinate events around inclusion, ultimately continuing the Opening Sessions theme over the course of the academic year.
