Inclusive Innovation Story Series 2021: Celebration of Black Innovation
March 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Inclusive Innovation Story Series is an annual event that seeks to celebrate barrier-breaking, cutting edge, and visionary stories from under-represented groups of JMU students, faculty, staff and alumni through Tedx Style presentations and events.
Each year will highlight a different part of the JMU community that makes our campus a thriving and vibrant place to learn and work, while also allowing a space for honest conversations and common ground. It is the goal that participants and viewers alike will reflect on what “innovation” means to them, considering a broader meaning of the word that need not be mired in the tech-startup stereotype it so often is, while also learning from people whose lives and perspectives may vary from their own.
The I2S2 hopes to highlight unique voices that embody a forward-thinking celebration of the creative spirit that can be found in all disciplines. Stories will be pre-recorded with a premiere showcase event that will take place March 24th, 2021 at 7:00pm in conjunction with the University Diversity Conference.
