"Café Diversity" to explore issues of inclusion and diversity at UNT

From a UNT News Service press release


The University of North Texas' Division of Equity and Diversity is beginning a series of regular meetings in which groups can have conversations exploring issues of inclusion, diversity, equity and access for faculty, staff and students.


The events, collectively known as "Café Diversity," will be held at the Golden Eagle Suite of the University Union. Each session will allow for dialogue among all participants in an atmosphere of respect and inclusion.


Gilda Garcia, vice president for institutional equity and diversity at UNT, says each month, the Café Diversity meetings will focus on a particular theme. The topic for the January Café Diversity meetings is "Building the IDEA Team at UNT."


Garcia says, "IDEA stands for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access. We want to build a team at UNT that will serve as an advisory group to the university leadership on IDEA matters. In addition, this team will annually measure our progress towards our goals and make recommendations for areas of improvement."
