Examples of Successful Approaches to Sustaining Diversity
There are several examples of successful approaches to sustaining diversity.
- The Clayman Institute for Gender Research seeks to “implement change and promote gender equality.” The Clayman Institute offers workshops, conferences, and fellowships in order to bring together intellectually diverse groups of scholars to produce insights into barriers related to the advancement and equality of women.
- The Association for Black Culture Centers aims to “celebrate, promote and critically examine the cultures (ways of life) of the following ethnic groups: African American, Latino, Asian American, and Native American...the ABCC expects that increased understanding of history and culture of each ethnic group will lead to authentic integration on campus and in the community”.
