“To reclaim is to take what once was and possess it again, to assert ownership despite, or perhaps because of, the sting of its prior loss.  Too often, the brilliance, style, and power that is drawn from our ancestors, culture, identities, and innate sense of self is borrowed, obscured, or overwhelmed.  The Inclusive Academy (IA) Symposium and BADI Awards are designed to reveal, affirm, and embolden the diverse scholars whose excellence, contributions, service, and overall awesomeness enrich the academy and our world.” —The Access, Diversity, and Inclusion Team

May 17th, 2024

The third annual Inclusive Academy (IA) Symposium is an in-person diversity conference focused on supporting graduate students and post-doctoral scholars from underrepresented backgrounds, on an array of topics related to success in the academy and on the job market. The symposium is focused on bringing graduate students and post-doctoral scholars from underrepresented backgrounds together while also providing a platform to discuss critical topics for thriving and success through a holistic and intersectional lens.

We will host panels, speakers, and workshops that enhance their knowledge and understanding of topics related to academic entrepreneurship, cultivating joy, interviewing, salary negotiations, and financial literacy in addition to strengthening their leadership, public speaking, networking, and storytelling skills.
