DEI Deaf-Centric Institute
Transcript: Save the Dates! June 21 – 23, 2023
The Division of Equity, Diversity and Inclusive Excellence (DEDI) is hosting the first DEI Deaf-Centric Institute!
What is this?? This is a unique opportunity to gain professional development in diversity, equity and inclusion from a Deaf lens!
There are three tracks!
Dynamics of Oppression
Our goal is to increase and strengthen the pool of professionals that do diversity, equity and inclusion work, from a Deaf perspective. That includes CDOs, consultants, practitioners, diversity educators, multicultural educators, researchers, and so on.
We are partnering with Deaf diversity experts from all over the U.S., to provide high quality workshops that will enhance the knowledge and skills of current and future DEI professionals.
This event is VIRTUAL! On Zoom! You can join us from the comforts of your home!

The DEI Deaf-Centric Institute, partnering with interdisciplinary experts, provides professional development opportunities related to diversity, equity, and inclusive excellence (DEI) from a deaf perspective. The institute aims to produce qualified and credentialed DEI professionals to collaboratively sustain a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, belonging, and social justice in deaf diverse communities. The objectives include acquiring a knowledge of history, examining bias, gaining a conceptual understanding of DEI, scrutinizing models of DEI, transforming your practice, and gaining and sharing expertise. The institute contains three tracks: Understanding Diversity, Institutional Work and Dynamics of Oppression, all within an Inclusive Excellence framework that steers the work of the Division of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusive Excellence. The institute is open to professionals working in the DEI field and any other professionals interested in the field.
The DEIDC Institute will be hosted on June 21 – 23, 2023, via Zoom. It’s a completely virtual event, so you can access it anywhere you wish. Below is the schedule of events, subject to change. Be sure to return to this page periodically to see updates and additions to the program.
