The Center for Diversity Innovation offers special events aimed at increasing awareness and mobilizing members of our communities to act in ways that promote racial equity and all forms of social justice. Events featured here were organized by the 2020-21 Center for Diversity Innovation Distinguished Visiting Scholars, academic departments/programs, staff and student organizations, and the Center director. Most events were free and open to all. See individual events for details.

The events listed do not include class sessions and departmental seminars/events that were restricted to enrolled students in UB courses and/or students/faculty/staff in those departments only.
