Diversity and the Predicament of Good Intentions

The TCDIP Professional Development Committee invites you to a workshop designed specifically for those who are directly involved in diversity and inclusion work. During this program, you will have the opportunity to think about your organization’s D&I initiatives and engage in deeper conversations about what is and is not working.

Many of us think we understand diversity and know how to engage with it. But if we don’t take the time to think about diversity in complex ways, we risk unintentionally trafficking in the exact patterns we seek to avoid. We call this the Predicament of Good Intentions. Professor Constanza Ocampo-Raeder, assistant professor of anthropology at Carleton College, will lead attendees through a deeper dive of specific initiatives to find opportunities to improve.

We invite 2 to 3 people from each TCDIP Member to attend. This is a good opportunity to use focused time to think about your own D&I work, examine complex issues, and emerge from the workshop with concrete tools you can implement.
