What will you do now? Diversity Forum’s second day explores equity

November 7, 2019

The second day of UW–Madison’s Diversity Forum Wednesday explored numerous inclusion topics, with sessions ranging from the language of gender identity to statewide racial disparities to inclusion for people with non-apparent disabilities.

It followed a first day highlighted by a keynote speech by ABC News correspondent John Quiñones, as he shared his journey from a Latinx neighborhood of San Antonio to national television networks as a Mexican-American descendent of migrant workers.

Held at Union South, the Diversity Forum is the signature event of the Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement. Now in its 20th year, the event continues to grow in popularity. Registrations this year topped 1,300, the largest to date.

Here are some highlights of the sessions on the second day of the forum, as featured in social media posts with the #UWDiversityForum hashtag:
