Canceled - Dr. Rachel Myers, The Hotchkiss School’s Director of Diversity and Inclusion

We regret that Dr. Myers’ program has been canceled.

On May 18 at 11 am, Dr. Rachel Myers, The Hotchkiss School’s inaugural Director of Diversity and Inclusion, will present, “Musings on Diversity: Personally, Locally, and Globally.”  Dr. Myers’ will discuss what diversity and inclusion mean in the increasingly complex context of identity.

Workplaces and schools, like countless communities across the world, are intentionally seeking diversity, believing that differences are community assets when community members understand and learn to engage with the divergent views of others.  Inspired by the school’s motto, “Guided by each other, let us seek better paths,” Dr. Myers harnesses the school’s diverse nationalities, ethnicities, genders, religions, socio-economic backgrounds, value systems and more to drive personal, organizational, and societal change toward greater equity and understanding.

Dr. Myers earned a Ph.D. in African American & African Studies with a concentration in English from Michigan State University. As an undergraduate at Binghamton University, she earned a B.A. in Africana Studies with a minor in sociology.   She played four years of NCAA Division I basketball and in 2016, was inducted into Binghamton University’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Dr. Myers is a published scholar who has written on the experience of Olympic black female athletes, media representation in sport, and conceptions of masculinity in sport.  She is also an instructor in the Hotchkiss School English Department.
