Campus Conversation on Advancing Diversity and Inclusion

Monday, February 25, 2013 at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

William Knox Holt Memorial Library, Community Room-1st floor
Corner of Dave Brubeck Way and Atchley Way, Stockton, CA

The University Community will come together to identify strategies for improving the climate in the classroom and throughout the campus as it relates to gender and gender identity and expression. Provost Maria Pallavicini will offer opening remarks along with a keynote presentation by Dr. Gayle Pittman.

Dr. Pittman is a Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies at Sacramento City College. Her first book, "Backdrop: The Politics and Personalities behind Sexual Orientation Research," won the ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award. Dr. Pittman has also written numerous articles and book chapters on gender and sexual orientation, and she blogs regularly at "The Active Voice."

Following the keynote address, attendees will participate in facilitated small group dialogues and reconvene to share specific strategies that will help the Pacific community become more actively engaged in creating an inclusive campus, particularly for women and members of our LBGTQIA community.

Please note that dinner will be served and faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to attend.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Bias Response Team and Student Life’s subdivision for Diversity and Community Engagement.
