The Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue Series is a monthly series open to faculty, staff, students and community members to learn about and discuss issues critical to cultural humility, health equity and diversity and inclusion.

The 2020/2021 Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue Series focuses on the social determinants of health in Sacramento and will highlight critical work of local Community Based Organizations (CBOs) in these areas.

Through the series, we strive towards building relationships through increased understanding and trust; which helps to foster an inclusive workplace.

Thursday, October 14th, 12-1 p.m.

A discussion with Dr. David Biale on the history of antisemitism and how it is involved in the racial tension of recent years.

Antisemitism is one of the longest-lasting and persistent forms of hatred and, despite the general acceptance of Jews in America, remains a real concern today. This talk will cover themes from the history of antisemitism over the last 2000 years, but will focus primarily on the post-World War II period in the United States. We will see how the recent rise in antisemitism has its own unique features, connected to the longer history, and also how it fits into the troubling context in the rise of racial hatreds in our country in recent years.
