  • NADOHE’s 2019 SPPI was the most relevant, affirming, and comprehensive professional development experience for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) professionals that I have attended. The experienced faculty were practitioners and scholars. They created the conditions for the participants to dialogue about their professional practice and the skills needed to be an effective DEI practitioner. I emerged from the Institute better prepared to lead impactful DEI initiatives and connected to a new network of institutional changemakers. ~Renée Smith-Maddox, Ph.D., Diversity Liaison Officer, University of Southern California, Dworak-Peck School of Social Work
