Diversity and Inclusion Week: Featured Speaker, Tiq Milan

Tiq Milan speaks and writes about intersectional leadership, transgender rights, and racial justice. He shares stories of his life and how his transgender experience has informed his views on masculinity, race, and the gender binary. A journalist for over a decade, his work has appeared on MIC, Buzzfeed, NBC and CNN. He is also a strategic media consultant helping organizations and companies create detailed media campaigns that will engage diverse audiences in ways that are inclusive and authentic.

Keynote: The Right Side of Inclusion

The evolution of language is one of the best examples of fruitful innovation ever. Tiq argues that effective, successful communication is about finding common ground amongst the intersecting human experience, and he shows you how to do just that. He explores new, fresh, and insightful ways to have respectful, forward-thinking, and ultimately bonding interactions with others. On stage, Tiq is passionate, emotive, and teaches through humor. He’s got powerful stats, colorful slideshows, and anecdotal evidence, all of which show that the more deeply and intimately we connect with people, the more prosperous our businesses and organizations become. This event is open to faculty, staff, students and the public.
