Author Tim Wise, one of the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States, will speak and sign copies of his books at the conference. Wise -- who was named one of “25 Visionaries Who are Changing Your World” by Utne Reader in 2010 -- has spoken in 49 states, on over 600 college campuses, and to community groups across the nation.

The Dialogue on Diversity Conference offers workshops addressing three areas:
  • an overview of diversity in education, media, business, health, religion and politics
  • best practices and current research in diversity
  • diversity techniques that can be used in the workplace

"We see this conference as an opportunity for a meaningful dialogue on the pragmatic and theoretical aspects of diversity," said conference organizer Dr. Hannah Clayborne. "In addition to college administrators and students, it will be a great learning opportunity for those working in areas such as politics, healthcare, religion, education and business."

The session takes place at the Galt House Hotel & Suites in Louisville. Registration is $100 per person and $25 for college students, with rates increasing after September 30.

More information and an online registration form can be found at the conference web site.
