Spots still available for diversity workshop about race

Registration is still open for “Beyond Diversity,” say organizers of the workshop being offered on Dec. 6 and 7.

The in-person, two-day seminar by Courageous Conversations aims to build community, launch innovation, and navigate the predictable pitfalls in interracial, multi-cultural conversations about race.

The workshop will help leaders, employees, and organizations understand the impact of race on their lives, their work, and their overall growth.

Madame Athena Chang will once again facilitate the workshop, which will model and teach a protocol for discussing race in ways that are productive, insightful, and generative.

Chang, who has consulted with numerous non-profits, schools, and private sector companies in building an inclusive, equitable culture, will lead interactive exercises that will strengthen participants’ critical consciousness of race and lead them to investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing disparities.

The workshop is presented by the Office of Human Rights Equity and Accessibility (OHREA) in collaboration with the Centre for Teaching and Learning.

The cost of the workshop is typically $850 per person, but OHREA will absorb the cost as part of its institutional commitment to anti-racism and anti-oppression. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
