Are There Winners and Losers in “Big Tent” Diversity?

Speakers Courtney Dredden Carter and Robert White

This informative and interactive session will explore the evolving and expanding definition of diversity and the implications for groups traditionally treated as diverse, diversity leaders and organizations. After sharing available data on outcomes of the expanded definition of diversity, the session will promote audience engagement through candid discussion about the complex and sensitive issues of defining (or redefining) who is “diverse.” Attendees will leave with practical advice on how to constructively manage challenges and increase effectiveness of their organizations and diversity initiatives.

At the end of this session, participants will:

  • Obtain research regarding the implications of “big-tent diversity”, i.e. broadening the definition of diversity to include populations outside the traditional markers of gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.
  • Gain insight on how individuals respond to different definitions of diversity.Explore how disparate groups within the traditional diversity may experience different outcomes from non-differentiated diversity efforts.
  • Participate in a frank conversation about how the definition of diversity can shape diversity initiatives within their organizations with practical advice on managing differing views on who should be considered diverse in different contexts.
