Faculty Diversity Dialogues 2017-2018

Led by experts in the field, CUNY Faculty Diversity Dialogues are forums for CUNY administration, staff, and faculty to build awareness around a range of issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This series will provide a forum for discussion focused on matters of inclusion, implicit bias, intercultural communications, and efforts to increase diversity through faculty and staff recruitment, retention, and advancement in the workplace. Building on the momentum of the first FDD held in May 2017, the ORD will host a series of dialogues throughout the year.
