The Multicultural Summit is a day-long, interactive forum for students to explore aspects of diversity and social justice. The Multicultural Summit this year is a part of the 2013-2014 Social Justice Series: The Year of the Ally and the summit is focused on the theme of allyship and ally development.

Our Multicultural Summit Facilitator, Jamie Utt, will lead participants through a series of keynotes and workshops on solidarity, accountability, and being an ally. After a thought-provoking keynote on what effective allyship looks like, participants will engage in an introspective workshop on identity and listening followed by an action-oriented session on understanding and avoiding perpetuating microaggressions. From there, Jamie will lead a session on being an ally at parties and other social spaces, and the day will close with a workshop on how to take action to be a better ally going forward. For more information on Jamie, please visit his website, his blog, or check out his work on Everyday Feminism

Breakfast and lunch will be served and all participants will receive a Multicultural Summit t-shirt. or more information contact the Office of Diversity Services at 617.573.8613 or email diversity@suffolk.edu.
