Three panelists representing corporate, non-profit, and academic domains will discuss how the covid-19 pandemic and the recent #BLM and anti-racism efforts are influencing their diversity and inclusion efforts. Panelists are Sadaf Parvaiz, Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, EY Canada; Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. which focuses on immigrant services, senior care, and affordable housing; and Martin Davidson, Senior Associate Dean and Global Chief Diversity Officer at University of Virginia Darden School of Business.

Tips, Tricks, and New Ideas for Approaching Diversity and Inclusion in the Classroom

Session #10333

Friday August 7, 2:00 – 4:00PM EDT (UTC-4)


Due in part to growing heterogeneity in student populations and important societal events such as #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements, this session aims to foster ideas for teaching “hot topics” related to D&I. Participants will learn how to translate D&I research for classroom materials, create teachable moments from current events, and gain tips on transferring D&I topics from the physical to the virtual classroom.
