Dismantling Diversity: Cultivating access and inclusion
Principles of diversity have served as the overarching catalyst to bring people from various backgrounds together in shared spaces. However, institutions and organizations often mistake diversity as the first and last step.
ODEI’s 2022-2023 program and event cycle seeks to disrupt the notion that equity is achieved through diversity alone. Objectively, several scholars assert that advancing access and inclusion are bedrock ideologies for shifting institutional policies, procedures, culture, and traditions.
By delving deeper into the lived experiences of historically underserved and underrepresented communities, we challenge ourselves to cultivate a genuinely inclusive campus ecosystem.
