Addressing the Complexity of Social Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Public Administration: Identifying Issues, Crafting Innovative Solutions and Celebrating Successes

This year’s conference examines the rising complexity associated with social equity, diversity and inclusion in public and nonprofit organizations. Nearly two decades into the new millennium, scholars and practitioners face unprecedented challenges in addressing issues of changing workforce demographics, healthcare affordability, environmental sustainability, social equity, diversity and inclusivity. This conference challenges us to identify the problems and obstacles associated with these issues, explore the alternatives for addressing them, and analyze strategies to build coalitions facing our world today.

Track 1: Identifying Challenging Issues, Obstacles and Trends Associated with Social Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Public Administration

Track 2: Exploring Successes and Best practices in Addressing Twenty-first Century Challenges to Social Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Track 3: Analyzing Strategies to Build State and Local Coalitions to Address Social Equity Issues Today
