Register here for Zoom Link

Inclusive Excellence is excited to welcome this year's Distinguished Seminar guests: Dr. Stephanie Pinder-Amaker and Dr. Lauren P. Wadsworth!
Join us to learn about their journey in researching and writing their book, "Did That Just Happen?! Beyond 'Diversity' - Creating Sustainable and Inclusive Organizations." The authors will also take questions about creating and maintaining inclusive organizations and the diversity challenges facing academia.
While we encourage everyone to pick up a copy of the book (it's fantastic!), no prior reading is necessary to attend this event. We only ask that you come ready to learn and with questions in mind.
