Diversity & Inclusion

Partnership and Sharing the Vision

The PDC is an advocate of the University”s commitment to be a catalyst for diversity and inclusion.  We value our partnership with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to support its efforts and encourage a rich sense of community.

The PDC is also a partner in the iLab (formerly Gatekeepers) initiative.  iLab is an inclusion learning lab that offers interactive workshops and online resources designed to support faculty, staff, and students in increasing their cultural awareness and interpersonal effectiveness. The initiative, led by ODI’s Diversity Education team, supports the University’s mission by fostering intersectional awareness and understanding, and empowering all members of the Wake Forest community to become more inclusive. Multiple levels of iLab are offered throughout the year and is a part of the CORE program.
