2018 IDE Summit: Poverty and Equity
Registration and Schedule

summit logo

Join us on Thursday, October 18, 2018 for a full-day of workshops and content exploring the intersections of poverty and equity in our community and beyond.

*Registration is now closed.*
Registration for the IDE Summit is $50 for Dartmouth employees (to be paid by departmental chartstring) and $60 for general public. It includes a full-day of workshops and content along with breakfast, lunch, and a reception.

We believe communities are stronger when they are diverse, inclusive, and equitable. Inclusion and diversity encompass a broad range of topics -- race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, ability, and more. This year's Summit is focused on poverty and equity -- and how those intersect with various identities.

Dartmouth's Inclusive Excellence initiative encourages all of us -- from departments across the institution -- to help foster a culture of inclusion at Dartmouth. Learning more about current social issues that affect our friends, students, coworkers, and community is critical to help us (1) better connect and understand one another, and (2) develop practices, programs, policies, and partnerships that best meet our institution's and community's needs. Each of us has a role to play in creating a culture of inclusion at Dartmouth -- whether we are creating new programs, writing code for a new website update, or greeting people when they enter our offices.

What is the IDE Summit?

The IDE Summit is an annual series of workshops that equip and empower faculty, staff and community members with the knowledge and skills to drive success by leveraging the power of inclusivity.

Diversity and inclusion are sometimes only thought of in the context of adding different people or perspectives to an existing group. While this is true, diversity and inclusion work expands beyond this thought to having people and organizations develop cultural competence. The following definitions of cultural competence have been widely used in the diversity and inclusion world:

  • "Cultural competence is a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency or among professionals and enable that system, agency or those professionals to work effectively in cross cultural situations" (Cross et al. 1989, cited in NCCC 2006).
  • "Cultural competence requires that organizations have clearly defined, congruent set of values and principles, and demonstrate behaviors, attitudes, policies, structures, and practices that enable them to work effectively cross-culturally" (NCCC 2006).

The mission of IDE Summit is to help increase the cultural competence of staff, faculty and community members in order to create a more inclusive community.

Who should attend the IDE Summit?

  • Dartmouth College staff and faculty
  • K-12 and higher education teachers and administrators
  • Non-profit, business, and other interested professionals
