Time & Location

About the event
Diversity is more than just a hot topic. The conversation around equity in our lighting community is just getting started. Want to learn why YOU are a critical part of the conversation? Join us for an introductory seminar and discussion on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.
This seminar is designed to educate members who commonly find themselves in a majority (white, straight, cisgender, male, non-disabled, etc.) on our evolving social landscape. It’s not a vocabulary lesson; no buzzwords for you to memorize. This is a low-pressure introductory session on why issues related to racism, homophobia, genderism, religious bias, ableism, classism, xenophobia, and sexism matter to you. It may inspire you to find your place in the conversation.
Meet our guest, Dr. Jarik Conrad, as he talks through his new approach to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.
Organized by the IESNYC Illuminating Equity Task Force: The Illuminating Equity Task Force collaborates with Equity in Lighting (EIL) to cultivate allyship within our community and encourage opportunities for diversity and inclusion.
