CEW+ Advocacy Symposium has postponed this event. The new event will appear on this calendar.
Rogério M. Pinto and the Faculty Allies for Diversity received the Carol Hollenshead Inspire Award for Excellence in Promoting Equity and Social Change. Pinto will present a lightening talk, Diversity Matters: How about Equity and Inclusion?, during the CEW+ Advocacy Symposium.
The 2020 Symposium includes a diverse group of scholars and community practitioners who embody leadership in varied ways as they advocate for change. Dr. Martha Jones will discuss the role of Black women in the civil rights and voting rights movements and the ongoing struggle for voting rights for different populations. This year’s Symposium will take place virtually as a series of presentations and workshops that will take place over the course of the academic year. At the kickoff event, 2020 CEW+ Inspire Awardees will present lightning talks about their work as a precursor to a full-length workshop that will happen later in the academic year as a component of the Symposium. The learning opportunities throughout the year-long Symposium will supplement Democracy and Debate Theme Semester coursework and activities.
This symposium is free and open to all activists, advocates, and allies from all U-M campuses (students, staff, faculty) as well as the local community.
