On May 11, DePaul will host its annual Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Forum. All faculty, staff and students are welcome to RSVP and attend.
Each year, the forum brings together DePaul stakeholders to discuss and explore current issues and promising practices. The forum's goal is to foster dialogue on creating a welcoming campus environment where all can succeed and belong.
This year's keynote speaker is Craig A. Ford, Jr., an assistant professor of theology and religious studies at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wis. Ford writes on topics at the intersection of queer theory, critical race theory and the Catholic moral tradition. His address for the forum, "Where the Church Does Its Learning," will examine the intersection of DEI initiatives with the Catholic mission and the church's social teaching.
Group breakout sessions will follow the keynote address, along with action steps toward transformation.
Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Forum Wednesday, May 11 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.RSVP
Guests may attend in person or online; lunch is provided for in-person attendees.
The JEDI Forum is organized by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity.
