Hire experts from the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life to serve as keynote speakers and panelists for online events, lead a workshop, or advise on an initiative. IDCL offers consulting services in two main areas: 1. oral history and narrative research project design and implementation, which includes archive curation and interviewing techniques and skills, and 2. religious diversity and civic life in Texas. All fees benefit the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life, a non-profit organization with a mission to create more inclusive public spaces through storytelling, research, and education.
IDCL is on a mission to expand civic imaginations and build bridges across differences through storytelling, research, and education. Our programs harness the power of stories to transform. We create platforms to amplify underrepresented voices, empower Texans to tell their stories on their own terms and in more nuanced ways, and diversify the historical record. Our programs bridge academic and public conversations, cultivate conversations about belonging and recognition, and facilitate collaboration across communities. Our work is also rooted in commitments to anti-oppression and anti-racism.
