Cosponsored by Social Justice Educators, UNH Office of Community, Equity and Diversity
This is a professional development opportunity for educators at all levels, especially administrative leadership, to further diversity awareness and engage in critical analysis of the services and relational dynamics needed in a diverse culture. We will explore social justice and anti-discrimination via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege; discrimination and prejudice; and inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities, including race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental) and religion. The workshop will include open and honest discussions, short readings and interactive/experiential activities in a respectful environment.
Participants will learn to be sensitive to the changing nature of identity-related language and recognize how personal experiences impact our ability to create a more inclusive climate in personal and professional practice. You will leave with a plan to implement at least three improvements to equity and inclusivity in your daily environment.
