Theme: Make No Little Plans

Recent events in the United States and around the world, informed in various measures by diversity issues – clashes over immigration, religious ideology, citizenship, healthcare, poverty, racial profiling, marriage equality – both on the street and in the statehouses underscore that thoughtful leadership related to diversity issues is needed now more than ever.
