DEI Training

Past and Upcoming trainings

Building Inclusive Communities/Spaces Training

Description: During this workshop participants actively engage with the ways in which society has taught us to think, feel, and behave towards different identities. Through several different activities the group will be able to reflect, dialogue, discuss, and debrief where these messages came from and how they fit into systems of privilege, oppression, power, and bias.

Micoraggressions:  Impact and Interventions

Description: This training explores how these daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, perpetuate negative stereotypes and cause harm. Participants will gain skills to identify and interrupt microaggressions, learn how they relate to interpersonal violence, explore ways to ‘call-in’ colleagues and utilize microaffirmations to foster a safer and more inclusive community. This workshop was developed using an intersectional lens and seeks to amplify and prioritize voices of BIPOC, LGBTQ+, colleagues with disabilities, and other marginalized staff and faculty, who are disproportionately impacted by implicit bias and microaggressions.inks if available are highlighted below
