COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Tickets for the Columbus State University’s Diversity Forum are now available for purchase.

The Mar. 15 event aims to bring the Columbus community together to celebrate diversity and inclusion. The keynote speakers for the 2018 conference are Carlos Gómez and Chrisette Michele.

Gómez is an award-winning poet, speaker, actor and author. His poems, “Where Are You Really From?” and “What Latino Looks Like,” have been viewed millions of times online.

Michele is a Grammy-award winning R&B and soul singer and songwriter. Her singles have ranked on numerous charts with her single, “Be OK,” earning her a Grammy in 2009 for Best Urban/Alternative Performance and her album Better picking up a nomination in 2014.

“This year’s forum is going to be unlike any other, because the speakers will lead breakout sessions that challenge participants to think through real-life scenarios,” said Johniqua Williams, development specialist for diversity programs at CSU. “Carlos Andrés Gómez is a powerhouse who will empower us with the tools we need to be more inclusive in our everyday lives, while Chrisette Michele has a powerful message of self-love and being courageous to do the right thing.”

The Diversity Forum is presented by CSU’s Office of Diversity Programs and Services and is a day-long conference and evening banquet that showcases successes in inclusion on CSU’s campus and fosters discussion to discover best future practices.

Attendees will take part in inclusive active learning that can be replicated for use in their own groups.

Tickets are $40 and include admission to the conference and the Legacy Celebration. Tables of eight are available for $320.
