Dialogues on Diversity are back. The first topic up: race and racism.

“In keeping with the theme of Hispanic Heritage month, we are going to have a conversation about race, what it is, what it means, and how racism comes to be,” Dr. Willie McKether, vice president for diversity and inclusion, said.

A panel of experts on race, culture and diversity will lead the discussion Wednesday, Sept. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Thompson Student Union Room 2592.

Campus community members are encouraged to talk openly about diversity with their peers, according to McKether.

“The Dialogues on Diversity give everyone on campus a voice and a chance to view issues from different perspectives,” he said.

Light refreshments will be served.

The free, public series will continue Wednesday, Oct. 18, and Wednesday, Nov. 15, with themes on LGBTQA+ and veterans, respectively.
