Workshop 1: Being an Ally in the Work of Equity & Diversity If “Diversity is Everybody’s Everyday Work,” then where do I fit in? How can I be part of this work if I never thought these issues were “my issues”? This workshop introduces participants to the concept of being an ally. Participants explore how it’s possible, and why it’s necessary, to work toward access, inclusion, and support for marginalized and underrepresented students, faculty, staff, and community members, and for greater equity in all parts of our institution—even from our positions of privilege.

Wokshop 2: Leadership in the Context of Equity & Diversity This workshop explores leadership in both traditional and nontraditional contexts, as well as both personally and institutionally. How can I leverage what formal and informal power I have to move equity and diversity work forward—in my job and in other parts of my life? What do I need to be a leader, and what will it mean to see myself as a leader on these issues? What will it take for my unit/department/college/campus to be seen as a leader on issues of equity and diversity?

Workshop 3: Working Effectively in Groups & Diversity Committees Most work in support of equity and diversity involves working closely with others, either on formal diversity committees or in informal groups of like-minded people. But shared commitment to equity and diversity values is not always enough to get people working together effectively. This workshop explores how groups and committees can be particularly effective on issues of equity and diversity and offers participants specific strategies for success. Anne Phibbs, Maria Eustaquio & Gabrielle Mead
