Posted by on June 3, 2020

The protests currently sweeping the nation and the responses they have generated affect us and the work that we do. If you are struggling with your role, personally and professionally, please check out these resources for staff, faculty and students. The workshops can provide you with information, guidance and a space in which to ask questions and be heard on some very personal and contentious topics. Workshop topics include:

  • Diversity 101
  • Allyship
  • Safe space

Supervisors are encouraged to engage their teams in these discussions. Sign up for a personal
consultation or group workshop
