As part of the Chancellor’s Campus Climate Support Initiative, University Human Resources (UHR) is pleased to announce a series of events aimed to combat all forms of discrimination and bigotry throughout The City University of New York. The collective series entitled Diversity Dialogues will address sensitive and important topics such as confronting anti-Semitism, fighting gender-based discrimination, disability discrimination issues, veteran’s rights and discrimination, and combating anti-Muslim hatred, among others. 

Monthly, UHR will present discussions and conversations from academic and non-academic viewpoints, highlighting issues pertaining to discrimination, methods and ideas to confront discrimination in all its forms, and specific actions to combat discrimination. 

The first session of Diversity Dialogues will be presented on Monday, Feb. 27 from noon to 1:30pm. In person and virtual attendance is available. The location for those attending in person will be 205 E. 42nd Street, 8th Floo,r Rooms 818/819. Due to capacity limitations, please register your planned attendance. Lunch will be served. 

The inaugural Diversity Dialogue will be an in-depth dive into thoughts on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programming through stories and scenarios. We are excited to have Professor Todd Craig of Medgar Evers College and The Graduate Center (Craig Todd | The Graduate Center) present and engage with the Central Office’s Chief Diversity Officer, Saly Abd Alla as opinions, feelings, and ideas are presented and examined. Audience participation is encouraged. 

This event is open to all CUNY employees. 

Please register your planned attendance online.
