Build a more equitable environment for the community of students, faculty, and staff within your higher education institution. Develop a sustainable practice to confront racism through anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
Equity audits and climate assessments continue to reveal evidence of equity gaps within the higher education community. These institutions must respond to racism within their communities by developing and enacting concrete and fully accountable plans and strategies to create equitable working and learning environments for students, faculty, and staff.
Work on anti-racism is an ongoing process that should not rest on the shoulders of BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) higher education leaders. Bravely Confronting Racism in Higher Education is a new program that will enable participants to effectively confront issues of inequality and racism within higher education from various perspectives. By the end of the program, participants will join a community of support and develop a greater sense of empathy. They will also acquire the tools necessary to create a sustainable antiracism, diversity, equity, and inclusion practice for themselves, their institutions, and their communities.
During this four-week virtual learning experience, participants will meet twice weekly to engage with practical tools and frameworks that focus on the behavioral aspects of a sustainable practice. Program structure includes live synchronous learning and supports participants as they begin to develop an action plan. A post-program webinar gives participants the opportunity to reflect and review their progress on plan implementation and reinforcement and maintain connections with their cohort.
