Members of the George Washington University community are invited to attend the 8th Annual Diversity Summit, taking place March 1-3. The full schedule of events is available here and registration is open here.
This year's theme, “Toward a More Perfect Union: With Liberty, Justice & Civility for All,” calls on us to recognize the diversity of our thoughts, voices, contributions and ideas that strengthen our community and the world. As we engage in difficult conversations and intense debates, we must be willing to seek the humanity in other people, challenge ourselves to understand another point of view and empower each other to disrupt and reject all forms of oppression.
Negin Farsad, an Iranian American comedian, actress, writer and filmmaker, will deliver the opening keynote address at 6 p.m. March 1. The author of the memoir “How To Make White People Laugh,” Farsad was named one of the 50 Funniest Women by Huffington Post, one of the 10 Best Feminist Comedians by Paper Magazine and was selected as a TED Fellow for her work in social justice comedy.
