OPINION: Continue the conversation online
As UP has shifted to an online environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, student clubs have made the most of online technology to continue to build community. Diversity and Inclusion Programs (DIP) was no different in this approach.
OPINION: Why stop when we’re just getting started?
As part of fulfilling that role, we helped plan Diversity Dialogues, two weeks full of programming that, this year, targeted issues and topics such as environmental sustainability, racial disparities in healthcare, cultural workshops, interfaith dialogues, and much more. It was the first year for all of us helping with Diversity Dialogues as diversity collaborators, and we wish to share some reflections on how these events can continue important and relevant conversations outside of the UP community.
