Diversity and Inclusion Summit

Intent vs. Impact: Improving Inclusive Interactions

Too often, diversity and inclusion experts hear about individuals or groups receiving well-intended communication from others that leads to unwanted or harmful impact. This dynamic can play a key role in leaving individuals or groups feeling divided—and in preventing our progress as an inclusive community.

Our goal with this year’s Diversity and Inclusion Summit is to bridge this gap and lessen the divide between intent and impact. The summit sessions will offer information on becoming aware of such occurrences and learning behaviors to mitigate them. The goal is to bring individuals and groups from across our four campuses—from many different backgrounds and lived experiences—closer together in our collegiality and humanity. We are building upon and beyond discussions of implicit bias and microaggressions to engage our broad university community in dialogue and practices that promote our values and improve inclusive interactions.
