 Diversity as a concept has many meanings. For some, it is the belief that diversity enriches both the natural world and our individual lives. At the same time, diversity has for some become a code word for something they feel uncomfortable with, a threat of unfair entitlement.

Join us for an evening with Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann, where he examines the many aspects of diversity in chemistry, biology, and the social sciences. Hoffmann’s lecture explores the value of diversity on both philosophical and social grounds, and what diversity means to our society.
