• Diversity

  • “I was motivated to connect people to information I think could help them make better decisions and communicate with each other more effectively and provide people with the chance to really think through their own identities, so they could be more aware of these diversity angles in their everyday life.”- Christopher Munt, co-facilitator, Conversation Circles

    The Diversity Roundtable of Greater Lafayette works toward inclusion by encouraging access, equity and respect for all.  The Diversity Roundtable is committed to addressing multiple dimensions of human diversity, specifically those that are linked to conditions in our community that result from prejudice and discrimination.

    The Diversity Roundtable provides leadership and promotes strategies to achieve a culture that values diversity as evidenced by attitudes, policies and practices within Greater Lafayette and Tippecanoe County, Indiana. There are typically presentations on pressing diversity issues at the monthly meetings. Other programs, such as Conversation Circles, Congress Street United Methodist Church Book Club, Quality of Life Council activities and Purdue University diversity and inclusion programs are discussed and promoted through The Diversity Roundtable. 

    The Diversity Roundtable also hosts a biannual Diversity Summit including a keynote speaker, lunch, small group sessions and learning sessions. The sold out 2015 Diversity Summit featured Dr. Derald Wing Sue, a leading expert on Microaggressions. A selection committee solicits nominations for the Diversity Roundtable Best Practices awards, presented at the Greater Lafayette Commerce Annual Dinner.
