Faculty/Staff, Students
FSI Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Task Force

The REDI Task Force invites you to a second keynote featuring Dr. Dwinita Mosby Tyler. This presentation takes participants on a journey of “deconstructing” the real meaning of equity, inclusivity and diversity. Participants will learn fascinating facts and insights that help us shift from learning and exploring to doing. The keynote is designed to inspire, intrigue and energize us during a complex time in history. We will explore everything from definitions, history, imposter syndrome, and begin to name and break down the fences which can stand in the way of developing equitable systems. 

Note: This event is reserved for current Stanford community members (staff, students, faculty)
