Auburn University’s Office of Inclusion and Diversity has opened registration for its 2020 Diversity Promising Practices Conference, or DPPC. The conference will be held Feb. 10-11 at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

DPPC is designed to bring together a cadre of thought leaders and professionals from various sectors to discuss effective diversity and inclusion strategies, foster learning and stimulate innovation. This year’s conference theme—An Inspired Pathway: Pursuing Leadership Intelligence Through Inclusion—questions how interdisciplinary, intersectional principles can help to inform the work of those who are responsible for leading in the diversity and inclusion space. The conference will feature a keynote from Candi Castleberry Singleton, vice president of diversity partnership strategy and engagement at Twitter.

Additionally, scholars and practitioners who are deeply immersed in the work of diversity, equity and inclusion, are invited to submit a proposal to lead a conference breakout session. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 13. The DPPC planning committee seeks proposals focused on elevating conference attendees’ knowledge, professional development, individual productivity and organizational effectiveness.
