Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia.
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Seventeenth International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities & Nations.
Urban spaces are uniquely, and intensely, diverse. In many ways, urban spaces provide an incubator for the safe acceptance of new kinds of diversities. What is the potential for the urban context to teach about action? How do urban spaces navigate the traditional categories of diversity in ways that are also open to new kinds of diversities? How can these diversities become productive for economic growth--not simply for the bottom line of cities but to able to invest in the social infrastructures that can nurture diverse identities and populations--and for the future of alternative diversities?
The Seventeenth International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities & Nations featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
