Convergence Training at University of St. Thomas, Feb 13, 2019

Through policy and practice, we aim to ensure that all diversity, equity, and inclusion work fully accounts for religious, secular, and spiritual identities. Unfortunately, these identities are often omitted from DEI work, and we aim to change that. At our training, we equip professionals with the historical context of this work, insightful strategic planning, and a wider network of colleagues. By building coalitions of professionals with capacity to serve these identities, we aim to improve our field and, in turn, campus experience for all students. Register here.
