Diversity in IT Community Group

Higher education IT units are increasingly multicultural and they serve multicultural communities where demographics (race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and age) continue to change bringing both benefits and issues to the workplace. This community group discussion will provide a platform for open dialogue and create avenues for collaboration to support group members, provide mentors, and advocate for diversity issues as they relate to members and higher education. Topics may include benefits of multicultural organizations, employment hiring, issues of inclusion/exclusion, access to key players, mentoring, training/education (professional development), social cohesion/relationships, and pay equity. Join this conversation with your own experiences, ideas, and questions.
