Next Diversity Symposium is Saturday August 13 at ESF Newcomb

The third symposium on diversity will be held from 9-4 on August 13.  You must register to attend using this link.

From the press release…

“The opening speech, remarks on the intersection of diversity, economics and social justice, will be given by Professor Wallace Ford.  Professor Ford is Chair of the Public Administration Department at Medgar Evers College”

“The keynote speech will be given by Aaron Mair, President of the National Sierra Club.  Mr. Mair is the first African American to lead the United States’ largest environmental organization.”

This is a huge issue for the Adirondack Park.  Our State becomes more diverse on a daily basis. Somehow we need to foster a shift in the demographics of our Park residents and visitors to better reflect the whole of New York State.  Not doing so will be a long term risk for the Park. This annual symposium is a place to start the many conversations to come.
