UNO Scholars Participate in 20th Annual Social Equity Leadership Conference
Several faculty members and one doctoral student from UNOs College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) will be participating in the 20th Annual Social Equity Leadership Conference, being held virtually June 9 – 11, 2021.
The conference, hosted by The National Academy of Public Administration, is a widely anticipated annual gathering of scholars and practitioners. This forum provides an avenue for them to discuss and share their expertise on how public administrators can develop a broader understanding of social equity and recognize social equity’s implications within the administrative context. This year’s conference focuses on “Fostering Social Equity: Innovation and Change.”
Dr. Justin Nix and Dr. Sadaf Hashimi, both UNO CPACS faculty members within the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, will partake in the Dismantling Racism, Sexism and Inequities in Policing panel discussion. Drs. Nix and Hashimi are policing scholars who will be sharing their relevant research and offering their insights.
Other UNO CPACS faculty involved with the conference include Dr. Rebecca Lutte of UNOs Aviation institute, Dr. Angela Eikenberry of UNOs School of Public Administration and UNO doctoral candidate Josey Hazelton, who is earning her degree through the School of Public Administration. These three scholars will participate in the Dismantling Racism, Sexism and Inequities in Transportation panel discussion.
