Connections: Discussing the diversity advantage

The Gandhi Institute is preparing to host a program about the "diversity advantage" — how society benefits when inclusion transforms into full equality.

Our guests discuss the issue from different perspectives. In studio:

  • Mary Scipioni, landscape architect, writer and critic, and owner of Pebble-stream
  • Tanya Bakhmetyeva, associate professor of gender, sexuality, and women's studies at the University of Rochester; and associate academic director for the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies
  • Mara Ahmed, political activist, artist and writer, and independent filmmaker at Neelum Films
