Presenters - Welcome Remarks: Senator Dave Cortese, Dr. Many Ann Dewan, & Kathy Wahl Keynote Presenter: Shelley Moore

How we understand inclusion is shifting. Rather than trying to include a few students who are different, we are striving to teach TO the difference. In this session we will look at how the goals of inclusion have continued to evolve, as we learn more about diversity and identity. We will reflect on next steps for advocacy and celebration, and have time to talk and make plans of action.
