Carthage students are invited to join Multicultural Affairs for the second annual Diversity Institute March 10-13. Here’s a look at the lineup for Monday, March 10. All sessions will be held in the Campbell Student Union Auditorium.

4-5:15 p.m.
Diversity Awareness
Dr. Cricket Lane, Asst. Athletic Director for Student Athlete Development, UNC at Chapel Hill & featured NCAA Speaker

Dr. Cricket will present a session for all audiences on the current state of diversity awareness in our society and answer pressing questions that impact the lives of college aged students. Why should students pay attention to diversity education? What benefits does living in a diverse community provide you? How can you become more educated about diversity? How do conversations about diversity become more comfortable and part of our everyday living? Why should everyone be exposed to more diversity in our lives, our education, and in our communities?

5:20-8 p.m.
The Whistleblower: Sex Trafficking, Military Contractors, and One Woman’s Fight for Justice
Sandra Bisciglia Director of Diversity and Assistant Professor of Religion

The movie is based on a true story of Kathryn Bolkovac. Kathryn is a former police investigator from Nebraska who served as an International Police Task Force human rights investigator in Bosnia. She cooperated with Human Rights Watch to expose the misconduct and human rights abuses committed against young girls, forced into prostitution and used as sex slaves by U.S. military contractors and other UN-related police and international organizations. In this double session, the movie will be viewed and followed by an informal talkback.
