Transitioning to a new Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) position is both exciting and challenging. Forging a path of transformational organizational change with increasing demands from multiple underrepresented groups and limited resources is no easy task. In addition to content expertise, your ability to succeed is dependent on continually increasing your capacity to navigate complexities and maintain an authentic sense of self and an unwavering focus on mission. This workshop will tackle these realities and provide practical solutions for navigating your early years as a CDO. Hear from seasoned CDOs and NADOHE CDO fellows still relatively early in their careers who can provide valuable insights. During this workshop, you will also have the opportunity to connect with other new CDOs in attendance and explore case studies. You will also learn more about how NADOHE can be a partner on your CDO journey


1:00pm - 5:00pm, EDT
Advancing Anti-Racism Strategies on Campus Framework Institute (Pre-Registration Required)



  • Clyde Wilson Picket, Ed.D., Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, University of Pittsburgh

Nearly three years removed from the murder of George Floyd and in an environment with persistent racial injustice/inequity, rapid demographic shifts, and continued violence against Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities, institutions of higher education across the nation and globe continue to grapple with the challenge of achieving racial equity and making racial justice a reality on their campuses. Diversity officers are confronted with the challenge of mapping out success in a hyper-partisan political environment in which Critical Race Theory and research in support of racial equity is under vigorous attack. Now more than ever, equity leaders must prioritize systemic and institutional change that is sustained and designed for long-term impact. Leaders must recognize the need to advance strategy to impact policy and practice that influences accountability, assessment, and outcomes.

We invite colleagues to join us for an institute to explore application of NADOHE’s Advancing Anti-Racism on Campus Framework. The Framework was developed by a group of seasoned senior diversity officers to put focus on areas of concentration to enact change and advance outcomes across different institutions. The framework also outlines several questions that diversity officers should consider as they implement anti-racism strategies into campus operations. We invite you to learn more about the framework and to hear from a group of seasoned practitioners who will outline leading racial justice efforts on their respective campuses and how the application of these efforts might benefit work at your institution. Participants in this session will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the Advancing Anti-Racism on Campus Framework
  • Explore the impact of how the Framework is applied to various institutional contexts
  • Examine the racialized experiences of multiple stakeholders groups and the impact of systemic racism on campus
  • Consider strategies that address racial inequities and advance racial justice and examine their broader application to other minoritized communities
  • Learn how to navigate the various tensions and resistance to implementing a racial equity framework
