Diversity Talks Podcast

Sponsored by the President's Council on Diversity & Inclusion Mini-Grant Program

Conversations on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity Talks Podcast features a collection of conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) that impacts our campus, our communities and beyond. Through this podcast, we bring forward the voices of leaders who drive change to create more inclusive cultures. In each episode, we welcome a special guest who is making an impact in their field. We will discover what they do, how they do it and understand what fuels their everyday passion for diversity and inclusion work. We hope that the depth of these conversations will spark a new discussion and dialogue on tough topics, generate new ways to view the world and help us build stronger communities.

Each episode includes a learning goal, a list of discussion questions and supplementary, freely available resources so it can easily be incorporated into a lesson plan or a workshop. Our intention is to help our audience use these episodes as an educational tool.
