2016 Diversity & Inclusion conference partners with T-Mobile

Abroaden thanks T-Mobile

On April 8, 2016, UW Bothell’s second annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference partnered with T-Mobile to strengthen the bonds among students, faculty and community. Participants engaged in workshops called Courageous Conversation, Advocacy and Action, and Allyship.

Students also presented their ideas for solving a diversity issue and vied for a $5,000 grant aimed at solving a diversity issue. Conference attendees chose as the winner a four-student team that is developing an app called Abroaden that connects people to local ethnic shops, restaurants and other gathering places.

In addition to the conference, a committee of students, faculty and staff developed a new Diversity Statement for UW Bothell.

In 2017, the third annual event was renamed the Equity & Inclusion Conference, as it is currently known. Resources and videos from past events are available here.
