4:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom B

Dr. Albert will discuss the work of dismantling institutional racism in higher education.

Over the past two years, there has been a significant increase in the commitment and interest in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. Institutions across industry, government and higher education have been seeking antiracist policies and practices all focused on creating more inclusive spaces and environments for all. However, there are systems that exist within all of these institutions that consistently yield inequitable outcomes, despite the commitment and sincerity of their leaders and communities. Dr. Albert will share her expertise and wisdom to help us think more critically about how we can implement inclusive strategies to create systems that are more likely to yield inclusive outcomes.

Dr. Katrice A. Albert is a passionate global thought leader who has masterfully interwoven the areas of inclusive excellence, higher education, intercollegiate athletics, race relations, culture and engagement with a penchant for people-centered talent management and mission-driven visionary leadership. With more than 25 years of purpose-propelled experience, she is a champion for access and opportunity and provides transformational business solutions, sustainable equity and inclusion strategies, and culturally-responsive leadership development services steeped in a focus on diverse top talent and the communities they serve.

Albert has a distinguished career in higher education and intercollegiate athletics. Most recently, she was appointed as the new Vice President for Institutional Diversity for University of Kentucky. In past years, Dr. Albert also served as the Executive Vice President of Inclusion and Human Resources at The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Prior to thar role, Albert served as Vice President for Equity and Diversity of the University of Minnesota system, as well as Vice Provost for Equity, Diversity and Community outreach at Louisiana State University (LSU). Dr. Albert is the author of “Racial Battle Fatigue in Higher Education: Exposing the Myth of Post-Racial America” (2015) and “Trayvon Martin, Race, and American Justice: Writing Wrong” (2014).
