Inaction: A Threat to Representation and Inclusion
Mr. Rory G. James, IU School of Public Health–Bloomington
When identifying the challenges and barriers to inclusion, we typically focus on structural, attitudinal, and administrative barriers. Yet inaction is a threat to creating true inclusion and promoting diversity. From stalling on administrative policies that can create substantial changes to passive responses to outright acts of intolerance, we can give countless examples of how idleness has hurt diversity efforts. In this interactive workshop, we will unpack how “inaction” manifests in higher education, law and other professions.
Rory James is the current Director of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion at IU School of Public Health–Bloomington. He earned a master of public health in epidemiology from Tulane University and a bachelor of science in biology from Tuskegee University. Prior to arriving at IU, he served as the director of the Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While in Illinois Rory also served on the Illinois HIV Planning Group. His background encompasses undergraduate and graduate student engagement and professional staff development in cross-cultural competency. He is currently working with IU faculty and administrators to address sexual health and sexual assault prevention among students of color. Rory has presented at dozens of local, regional and national conferences on diversity and access, masculinity and outreach to men of color, student retention programs, and health awareness.
This event is brought to you by the Office of Student Affairs as part of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Series. Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP on CareerNet. Room 214, noon.

Greetings from the Ostrom Workshop!
We hope you can join us for the next Workshop Colloquium featuring Jen King (Stanford Law) on Monday, October 21, at noon at the Ostrom Workshop. The title of Jen’s paper is “Integrating Privacy, Personal Disclosure, and Social Exchange Theory: An Experimental Test” and can be found on our website.
We have made several changes to the format of the Ostrom Colloquium Series based on popular demand, including: giving speakers 15 minutes for introductory remarks before the floor is opened for discussion, providing cookies and coffee, doing away with the practice of taking attendance, and hosting a group lunch with the speaker immediately following the colloquium. (If you want to join the lunch, please email Allison Sturgeon, email@example.com .) We encourage any and all to attend who are interested regardless of whether or not you have had time to read the full paper that is being presented, and promise a warm, friendly, but rigorous discussion.
Colloquiums, as with most Workshop events, are live streamed. You can download papers and access streaming and archives from the Colloquium Series webpage. While there, please do check out the complete listing of the exciting Fall 2019 lineup as well as a range of other events and lectures including the Wednesday Research Series, Tocqueville Lecture Series, and Working Groups. 513 N.
