Many colleges and universities have made college diversity a key issue. Many students are subject to culture shock when they start higher education due to the addition of international students. It's important to provide diversity training to college students.
Using diversity and leadership speakers who are experts in diversity as part of a campus program is a great option. Even though there might be resources on campus for diversity education, having outside professional diversity and leadership speakers can complement them and provide more perspectives to diversity, especially if they come from different backgrounds.
A diverse speaker must have a lot of experience with people from diverse backgrounds, including those of different ethnicities. An interesting speaker from a visible minority would also be a good choice, as they can share their experiences with audiences from a minority perspective.
A college diversity speaker who has worked in diverse environments will be an asset as they can share real-life examples of diversity successes from the workplace. These examples will make students more aware of the importance of developing their diversity skills for their future careers. They are more likely to embrace diversity when they see the positive benefits. The college diversity speakers must also explain how students can learn diversity skills to be able to use them on campus and in their future jobs.
