Join Community, Equity and Diversity for the DE&I 365 Symposium

BLACK LIVES MATTER. Community, Equity and Diversity (CED) established the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) 365 Symposium as a virtual “third space” for University of Rhode Island students, faculty, staff, alumni, affiliates, and community members to convene conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and decolonization. The conversations will take many forms, including panels, workshops, book talks, discussion groups, envisioning sessions, and teach-ins, bringing together a multitude of voices and perspectives to grapple with the topics that impact us within and beyond the University. The theme for this year’s DE&I 365 Symposium is Black Lives Matter. This summer, CED will offer a preview of the sessions planned for the academic year, so please viair the CED webpage for updates.

Session Description: This workshop session will present and discuss data and strategies related to the recruitment and advancement of Black faculty and staff through URI’s employment pipeline. A Q&A will follow the presentation. Intended for University faculty and staff.
