Description

This workshop is open to faculty and staff who are managers and supervisors.

In this session, managers and supervisors will learn and practice an approach to use a guiding template for facilitating 15-minute anti-racism discussions with their team. We will also share a plan on how to begin conversations on sensitive topics, and view a conversation in action.

You will learn to:

  • Strengthen facilitation skills for short discussion
  • Advance self-confidence as a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) discussion facilitator
  • Leverage existing content and templates to promote robust discussions

You will benefit by:

  • Improving facilitation skills that support brief discussions on sensitive topics
  • Learning how to create an inclusive, safe environment for discussions
  • Having a plan for what you’ll do if tensions arise

This workshop is facilitated by the Advocacy and Professional Development subcommittee of the Anti-Racism Oversight Committee (AROC).
