This one-hour TED Talk-style presentation is open to all members of the campus community. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
Dr. Williams is one of the founding architects of the “Inclusive Excellence Model,” and one of the foremost authorities on diversity, equity and inclusion, and driving organizational change in higher education. He is a global thought-leader having worked with more than 700 colleges and universities, Fortune 100 companies, foundations and government agencies as a keynote speaker, strategist, educator and social impact leader.
The lecture is part of a two-day residency, in which he will speak with members of the Campus Climate Task Force and Committee on Faculty Diversity, Inclusion and Development. Williams also will lead a strategic equity, diversity and inclusion planning session for deans and department heads, and will direct a “Student Success Session” for faculty and staff working on student success initiatives.
