"Identity, Inclusion & Social Transformation: Centering Class, Power, and Privilege"

Bucknell's 3rd Annual Diversity Summit begins on Tuesday, March 27 with a community dinner followed by keynote speaker Elizabeth Armstrong. Wednesday, March 28 includes panels, workshops, dialogues, poster and other creative presentations that spotlight the expertise and experience of Bucknell students, staff and faculty.

This year's Summit provides opportunities for the campus community to develop and strengthen knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary for meaningful, productive social justice work on campus and beyond. While socioeconomic class is prominent in this year's theme, this focus does not require that other relationships of privilege and power be ignored. In fact, focusing solely on class is insufficient if our goal is positive change. We must simultaneously confront other forms of oppression, including racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, transphobia, among others, as well as work together to support all communities in challenging institutional and individual discrimination and oppression.
