About the Diversity Symposium
Beginning in 2001 with a one day event, the Diversity Symposium has now grown into a week-long conference featuring over 50 one-hour sessions relating to diversity and inclusion, cutting-edge research presentations, an entire day devoted to the Feminist Fight Club at CSU, a variety of keynote speakers, and a strand focused specifically on educators.
In addition to longer format talks, a highlight of CSU’s Diversity Symposium is CSU Inspire. This featured event brings 5 – 10 TED Talk-like sessions led by CSU faculty, staff, and students and focused on sharing engaging and inspiring initiatives happening on our campus in relation to social justice, in short 8-minute presentations.
The Diversity Symposium is free and open to the public. For any accommodations requests, please contact VPD Program Coordinator Alicia Sprague at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 491-6544.
