Description

Now a major multicultural business conference, the conference was first held at Fairfield University in Connecticut during 2001. The conference has a history of bringing together entrepreneurs, corporate diversity practitioners, government agencies and college/university, practice-based participants with an interest in the issues of multicultural business and community. The conference examines the concept of multiculturalism as a positive aspect of a global world and globalized society.

Diversity is in many ways reflective of our present world order. Diversity as a mode of social existence can be projected in ways that deepen the range of human experience. The conference will seek to explore the full range of what diversity means and explore modes of diversity in real-life situations of living/working together in community. The conference supports a move away from simple affirmations that 'diversity is good' to a much more account of the effects and uses of diversity on differently situated communities in the context of our current epoch of globalization.

The conference looks at the realities of diversity today, critically as well as optimistically and strategically. The conference will be a place for speaking about diversity, and in ways that range from the 'big picture' and the theoretical, to the very practical and everyday realities of diversity in organizations, communities and civic life.

The Diversity Conference is a participants' conference, including numerous parallel sessions.

Conference attendees have benefited from the numerous networking and educational sessions. The conference also has a special focus on building business relationships for multicultural owned businesses and major corporations. Attendee’s have reported millions of dollars in contract awards from attendance at the conference
