2024 Diversity Forum

2024 Diversity Forum

Legacy Celebration: Cunningham Center: Blanchard Hall
Wednesday, March 27, 2024, 6pm

The CSU Diversity Conference began in 2012 as a partnership between the Mayor's Commission on Unity and Diversity (formally One Columbus) and Columbus State University. The brainchild of Dr. Florence Wakoko, Professor of Sociology at CSU, the goal was to create a platform to engage the Columbus community and CSU in serious, and sometimes difficult dialogue concerning issues of diversity, poverty and inequality.

Moving forward, the conference has merged with Columbus State University's Legacy Celebration to form the annual CSU Diversity Forum. This important partnership will continue to work with supporters and groups within the community namely in conjunction with the Mayors Commission on Diversity and Unity, to discuss a broad range of issues reflecting the diverse lives of many throughout the Columbus region in regards to race, religion, gender, sexuality, disability, education, nationality, poverty, and privilege.

Ticket price: $25 for an individual $200 for a table up to 8 people.
