Framing Diversity: An Interdisciplinary Review

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 04:00
4:00-6:00 PM


Lindsay Rogers Room (Room 707) International Affairs Building

In every rhetoric, diversity has become a keyword, an influential binding term that is open to local interpretation. There is a lot of enthusiasm for diversity programs, but little clarity on what organizations do in regards to diversity. In this seminar, Sandra Portocarrero will present a brief analysis of the sociohistorical roots of diversity management, and engage diversity literature produced across various academic disciplines to understand diversity practices.
