Please join us for a book club focused on the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion created through the Women’s Mentoring Network. The purpose of the book club is to engage people in conversations surrounding diversity, and how we can make a more inclusive campus. The books may not all relate explicitly to higher education, and the discussions can take us beyond the university lens. Text is used to give everyone a common-ground on which to begin these conversations, and we will look into texts that explore different facets of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

And how do we do it expeditiously?  These are good questions, especially in these times of volatility, uncertainty, and complexity.
