Let’s Talk Race: Conversations on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for Nonprofit Leaders Facing Race and Equity Together
FREE for KNN members and potential members
Join your nonprofit colleagues for discussions on the diversity, intersectionality, and inclusion issues facing the sector. This session will be led by OJ Oleka, PhD, president of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU). Dr. Oleka will discuss how historical government policies around institutional racism, while outlawed today, are still having an outsized impact on the economic, educational, and life outcomes for Black Kentuckians. Dr. Oleka will discuss the work that AIKCU institutions are doing in higher education on this issue, as well as the policy initiatives of AntiRacismKY, a coalition he co-founded to help end any vestige of institutional racism in Kentucky state and local government policies.
