Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Series

As an organization committed to attracting and retaining more young people in New Hampshire, Stay Work Play is committed to making the state a more welcoming, inclusive, and just place for people of color. The results of our 2017 survey of New Hampshire residents aged 20-40 years old cited lack of diversity as a potential reason to consider leaving the state, in addition to it being a top concern for young people that participated in our Policy & Pints Pop-Up Series.

As a part of the diversity, equity, and inclusion series, we will offer events to foster conversation, enable learning experiences, and push for change.

DEI Discussion with NH Colleges and Universities (September 2020)

New Hampshire’s colleges and universities have been at the forefront of the state’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts as they seek to make not just their student populations, but their workforces, more just places for all.

The panel discussion features representatives from several of the state’s collegiate diversity, equity, and inclusion offices. Learn more about how these institutions make their campuses more welcoming to people of color and how, in the process, they make them more attractive places to study and to work. The panelists will also share lessons learned and advice on actionable steps attendees can take to make their own organizations more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
