Evansville’s┬áDiversity Lecture Series is a collaborative effort among the City of Evansville and businesses committed to the support of diversity within the Evansville community and surrounding areas. The Diversity Lecture Series uniquely combines the shared resources of city government, education institutions, and business corporations to benefit all community constituencies by creating a broad platform for thought provoking ideas.

The concept of Diversity encompasses acceptance, as well as mutual respect. We must understand that each one of us is unique, recognizing our distinct differences, whether it be race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, age, education, physical abilities, religious convictions, political beliefs or other ideologies. Diversity is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, nurturing environment. It is transcending beyond tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of Diversity contained within each individual.
