The Diversity and Inclusion Science Initiative (DISI) is a signature program in the Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at ASU. Sponsored by the school, we, as graduate students, are holding the 2nd annual conference designed to showcase how the work of ASU graduate students from all disciplines advances diversity and inclusion efforts. We intend for this conference to be interdisciplinary and encourage submissions from any ASU graduate student.
The conference seeks to:
As such, we invite graduate students from any discipline on any campus at ASU to participate in the 2nd annual DISI Graduate Student Research Conference. Anyone who is enrolled as a graduate student at ASU at the time of the conference (Spring 2019) is eligible to present.

Communication is paramount in academia as a graduate student, yet building the skills to be heard by your advisors, peers, and students can be difficult without formal instruction. This workshop is designed to address the challenges graduate students face in opening and continuing challenging dialogues through the tenure of their graduate program and beyond. Participants will learn effective strategies for developing sustainable relationship dynamics and boundaries for norm-setting to handling hot button issues as they arise. Participants will explore together through a proactive and collaborative environment. They will share successful and less successful classroom and advisor experiences, learn about effective structures and pedagogies and practice through the use of case scenarios.
