Since 2013, the Collaborative Diversity Conference (CDC) has shared Missouri State University’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion to area leaders and businesses.
The 2019 conference theme, “Bridging the Cultural Divides,” continues that mission.
“The goal of Professor Manji’s Moral Courage Project is to address issues in the right way, despite the fears that we may face,” Pratt said. “We are honored to have her for all three days of the conference.”
Manji will speak during many sessions at the CDC.
Pre-conference details: April 24
The conference starts with “Facing Racism in 2019 and Beyond,” an anti-racism, pre-conference workshop. Attendees will learn tactics to combat racism in the workplace and the current social and political climate.
