The 2023 conference theme is The Illusion of Inclusion – Collaborative Solutions for Performative Diversity.
Sharing quantitative and qualitative stories, the conference is seeking an array of solutions for the CUNY context and achieved through open-minded dialogue. Through the lens of CUNY faculty, staff and students, these solutions may have emerged from the disruption of the pandemic in New York City.
For example, all agree about the value of community, but what does this look like and how do we move beyond statements to actionable activities? What has been the level of dedication to their implementation so that all voices are heard? How to create engaged dialogues to improve equity? And who continues to be marginalized? We propose to explore the synergies of these new models.
