This workshop is open to faculty and staff who are managers and supervisors who want to hone their facilitation skills for discussions with their teams on anti-racist topics.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice facilitation skills for short discussions on sensitive topics with their team
  • Advance their self-confidence as a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) discussion facilitator

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). It is hosted by the Office of Faculty Development but is open to all Michigan Medicine Faculty and Staff.
