    Dr. Lyle Foster gives opening remarks at the 2019 Collaborative Diversity Conference.

    In the absence of trust, differences plant seeds of resentment—and, ultimately, conflict.  

    That’s why  Missouri State University’s 2021 Collaborative Diversity Conference theme is “How to revive dialogue in a time of deep division.”  

    This year, anyone can attend the virtual conference for free, thanks to event sponsors. 

    About the plenary 

    The conference will feature a  presentation from Irshad Manjian international bestselling author and founder of Moral Courage College.  

    Manji’s Moral Courage College teaches people how to engage productively about polarizing issues. She also lectures with Oxford University’s initiative for global ethics and human rights.
