Equity as Action: What do we DO differently to become more equitable and inclusive?
Tuesday, March 31 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amNo cost to participate
It’s not just what we do, but how we do it that matters. Many groups and organizations have made a commitment to equity, inclusion, and diversity, but are not sure how to infuse this throughout their policy, process, programs, and activities. Often, it is difficult to know what to do after the commitment has been made, the bullet point added to the strategic plan, the feedback has been received, or the priority has been set. What do we DO to become more equitable and inclusive? What comes next? Where do we go from here? This workshop can be taken alone, or as the first in a three-part series.
