Navigating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Issues Globally

Speaker:  Carla Koppell

Urgent challenges relating to diversity and inclusion are universal. The global #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter movements as well as the push for LGBTQI rights are all emblematic of a growing interest in and focus on how to better embrace and capitalize on diversity. Yet these social movements exist alongside renewed efforts to constrain minority rights and stem immigration around the world.  Carla Koppell will join us for a conversation discussing how to understand and navigate these countervailing forces so that we can build a more peaceful and inclusive world.

Carla Koppell, editor of the newly released Oxford University Press volume Untapped Power: Leveraging Diversity and Inclusion for Conflict and Development, currently teaches and serves as a distinguished fellow and senior advisor with the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. Carla has an extensive career in international affairs. She served in the Clinton and Obama Administrations with the U.S. Agency for International Development, and as a vice president with the U.S. Institute for Peace. She writes and speaks widely on global affairs issues and has worked in over 30 countries globally.
