Engaging Diversity, Building Peace, Changing Communities
The Seventh Annual Doyle Symposium
In an era of increasing global interconnectedness, engaging diversity is essential to enhance awareness of difference and create inclusive communities. However, what does this mean in practice? To what extent are our university community and other organizations engaging these issues and what challenges remain?
Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet shared her reflections on the history and development of the Peace Corps’ intentional engagement with interreligious and intercultural diversity to build peace and enhance global development. Following the keynote, faculty and student panelists addressed these questions through their experiences with Doyle programs and diversity initiatives on campus and beyond. Georgetown Provost Robert Groves introduced the event.
