First off we would like to thank all y’all for putting on the Diversity Summit; this was an awesome opportunity for us to hear from Helen Zia about real world activism and how we all can be activists in our own unique and important ways. We are a group of students in a women’s studies class and we were encouraged to find events on campus that may relate to our women’s study class.
This Diversity Summit was a great place to discover concepts relating to our class as we learn about our own identities and how those identities relate and intertwine with others. We would like to thank you for allowing us to be a part of the conversation and discussions. It means a lot that students and faculty were able to come together to encourage unity and communication. It is refreshing that those in a position of power are willing to listen to student and community members opinions.
We would like to hear more about everyone else’s opinions and experiences from the Diversity Summit!
