Castillo and Ringenbach’s team presentation, “Creating a Pathway of Connections: Interracial Mentoring Through Instrumental Versus Relational Perspectives,” looked at ways to mentor new faculty of color in the academic environment.
Johnson, Galloway and Shukla discussed “Diversity to Inclusion: Integrating Elements of Diversity Into Curriculum and Facilitation that Fosters an Inclusion Learning Community.” They discussed how diversity of thought, culture, background and experience need to be considered against the backdrop of diverse cultures and societies in different geographic areas. Professor Sheila Steinberg, Ph.D., contributed to the report.
Founded in 2000, the conference brings together scholars, government officials and practice-based participants with an interest in the issues of diversity and community. “Being surrounded by academics, scholars, practitioners, attorneys and researchers, most of whom lead their respective institution’s departments and divisions of diversity, inclusion and equity, was an incredible experience. We both contributed to and learned a great deal from our international peers,” said Johnson.
