Amer F. Ahmed, EdD, vice provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the University of Vermont, will give a talk titled "Addressing Islamophobia: Dispelling Myths to Break Down Barriers." The program will take place on Friday, April 12, from 12-1 p.m., in Hope 216 (315 Cedar St.).

The event is open to the Yale University community. Lunch will be provided. (Registration is required.)

Ahmed will share insights about Islam and Islamophobia, providing much-needed context for us to bridge divides that have been exposed by the post 9/11 era.

Ahmed is an organizational strategist who helps institutions and leaders address diversity and inclusion, equity, race, and intercultural development through consulting, coaching, group facilitation, and keynote speeches. A frequently requested speaker nationwide, Ahmed’s approach is grounded in a commitment to inclusive community and excellence. He brings his identity as the son of Indian Muslim immigrants and extensive years as an intercultural and diversity consultant as the sources of a pivotal understanding of the depth of equity and inclusion work.
