EVENTS FOR EQUITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Learn & Laugh
Connection: the first step to understanding.
To combat racism, we must get to know each other. Events help us do that. They allow us to share perspectives, cultures and traditions. Plus, they’re fun! You can dance, sing, watch movies, you name it – while connecting with community members.
Celebrate the variety of cultures that makes Northeast Wisconsin a more interesting place to live.
Wisconsin Latinx History Collective
In a two-day kick-off event March 19-20, 2024 we introduce the Wisconsin Latinx History Collective and meet to determine a pathway to participation. The goal is to celebrate Latinx contributions and update the state history through collection of oral histories from Latinx people in this community and region.
Community Kwanzaa Celebration
Our Community Kwanzaa Celebration features food, entertainment and a guest speaker. Each year centers around one of the seven core principles of the celebration. The principles are: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith.
Philosophers’ Cafés are public forums held at local coffee shops and pubs where community members engage in open, friendly and respectful dialogue in a relaxed and informal setting. We'll discuss topics ranging from traditional philosophical problems to pressing contemporary issues. Topics will be introduced and discussions moderated by faculty from either UW-Green Bay or St. Norbert College.
Inclusive Reads & Conversations Series
The goals of this series are to help the University ask and respond to difficult questions about issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, and access; amplify voices of scholars and researchers who write about these topics; and magnify the talents of our university community.
