 Workplace Diversity Series, Spring 2018

Join IDE’s Office of Inclusive Engagement for Session One of the Workplace Diversity Series, hosted in collaboration with the College of Education. Working in a diverse environment brings both opportunities and challenges. By becoming more informed, gaining skills, and having conversations with others, we can improve and enhance our workplace relationships and our overall campus environment. We all have a right to work in a place where we feel welcome, included and appreciated. We also have a responsibility to do our part to create this type of environment for ourselves and others, but it’s not always easy. Attend these workshops to get information, ideas and support in a safe, informative and collegial environment.

 Constructive Communication across Differences Series, Spring 2018

Join IDE’s Office of Inclusive Engagement for the spring 2018 Constructive Communication across Differences Series, in collaboration with the Department of Communication. This series is designed to enhance the capacity of faculty, staff and students to engage in conversations about challenging, emotionally-laden topics (i.e., race, discrimination, policy, politics, etc.). The skills learned in this series can be applied in the workplace, classroom, and interpersonal and community contexts. Participants are encouraged to bring real-life situations to the sessions to serve as practice and learning opportunities.
