This year’s event will be offered in a hybrid format. The in-person experience will be limited to 300 individuals while live-streaming will be made available to all registrants with university credentials the morning of the event.
The experience will be presented in two parts. Part one is 9 to 11 a.m. in the Nebraska Union Ballroom and will provide the campus community with critical diversity updates and highlight achievements in inclusive excellence at Nebraska. Part two will begin at 11:15 a.m. in the Swanson Auditorium and will feature a panel conversation titled “Inclusive Futurism: The Future of Inclusive Excellence.”
The panel discussion will be moderated by Marco Barker, vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion at Nebraska, with panelists Debra Schrampfer, assistant vice president and chief diversity officer in workforce resources at Union Pacific; Jasmine Kingsley, chief people and legal officer for Hudl; and Carlos Terrazas, disability inclusion/accessibility professional with McDonald’s Corporation.
Since 2019, the State of Diversity has provided historical and key data points, reporting and measurements of the university’s progress toward inclusive excellence.
