This panel was thoughtfully crafted to provide a platform for students that identify as Black, Indigenous, South/East Asian, Latinx or Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander to authentically share personal stories on their journeys to find inclusivity and a sense of belonging within the UW campus community. Curated by the Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement, the panel showcases a diverse array of student experiences, encompassing various ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, abilities, genders, and sexualities. This part of the Diversity Forum is to offer a space for BIPOC students to be heard and for attendees to learn and engage while exploring the dynamics of identity.
