Diversity Awareness Partnership

D&I Seminar Series

Diversity & Inclusion are constantly evolving landscapes. We will always have more to learn, more to share, more to explore, and more to innovate around, as our shared spaces grow in the direction of liberation for all marginalized people. DAP’s D&I Seminar Series aims to be a part of that collective learning; the program consists of 1.5-hour educational sessions that focus on different aspects of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Together we can tackle nuanced topics with humility and excitement – topics that have a huge impact on our everyday lived experiences.

DAP is offering discounted tickets to people experiencing reduced access to financial resources. We hope that everyone interested can bring DEI knowledge to their organization, community, or personal activism work. Please contact Sarah Masoud at smasoud@dapinclusive.org for registration information.
