This plenary session will discuss the Centennial Generation and the need for higher education institutions to future proof themselves by embracing the new realities of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the academy. Leveraging insights from the similarly titled book, Strategic Diversity Leadership: Activating Change and Transformation in Higher Education, and recent publication on the Centennial Generation, Dr. Williams will discuss topics such as the perfect storm powering diversity in the new economy, the emergence of the Centennial generation, the challenge of leading change, and the educational and organizational benefits that emerge by embracing inclusive excellence as a strategic imperative. Grounded in more than 20 years of research, thought leadership with institutions globally, and real-world experience leading change efforts in higher education, non-profit, community, and corporate sector organizations, this session will provide clear insights, evidenced based practices, and actionable tactics for all in attendance.
