The Power of Remembering: Reclaiming Our Legacies to Imagine New Futures

Event Details

Monday, November 14, 2022
9 a.m.-4 p.m.

The 2022 Diversity Forum conference will focus on history: how we can better tell previously untold stories, what we can learn from our shared history and how we can use those lessons to move toward a more equitable and inclusive future. The theme will work in alignment with UW–Madison’s Public History Project public exhibit, “Sifting & Reckoning: UW–Madison’s History of Exclusion and Resistance,” at the Chazen Museum of Art, and the 2022-23 Go Big Read selection, “How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America” by Clint Smith. In-person attendees will have an opportunity to attend a special reception at the Sifting & Reckoning exhibit at the Chazen Museum from 4:30 – 6 p.m. on Nov. 14.
