Speaker Brings
'Diversity 101' to CSUS

Consultant Byron Kunisawa will appear at California State University, Sacramento this week for a Year of Unity talk about how institutions can serve a multicultural population.

The free event, titled "Cultural Solutions: Addressing the Global Challenges of the 21st Century," will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 17 in the University Union Hinde Auditorium.

Kunisawa has spent more than 30 years studying the relationship between people and institutions. He specializes in workforce diversity, organizational development, multiculturalism and systemic change. In his "Diversity 101" talks, he explores how both private corporations and public institutions can address issues surrounding changing demographics and cultural differences.

His clients have included school districts in major cities such as San Francisco and New York, health organizations such as the National Institute of Health and large government organizations such as NASA.

Kunisawa is a third generation Japanese American who was born in an internment camp at Topaz, Utah. He spent his early childhood in a predominantly African American community in Oakland.
