Northern Nevada Diversity Summit
Work, Study, Family, and Life Balances in Higher Education: Advancing Best Practices in a Pandemic World
The 2022 Northern Nevada Diversity Summit was held virtually.
The summit offers attendees the opportunity to learn about new ideas and emerging and practices as well as network with campus and community leaders. This year's theme was voted by the Cultural Diversity Committee, in consideration of the ongoing and evolving challenges of the pandemic and its effects on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in higher education, as well as unresolved and historical racial and social justice demands. Given the focus on advancing “an ethic of care,” we are proud to announce that this year’s Summit will be dedicated to the work and legacy of bell hooks, the trailblazing scholar, author, social activist, and feminist, who dedicated so much of her efforts to those critically needed concerns and who passed away last December (who signed her name in lower case letters as a testimony of the importance of the work and not the author).
