This is a past event.
Have you noticed that different people have vastly different experiences in classes, meetings, informal and formal events, and other interactions on campus?
Ever noticed that this is dependent upon visually identifiable identities (gender, skin color, etc.)?
Would you like to learn more about becoming an ally in the moment and to help intentionally craft the culture at Michigan Tech to position every single individual for success?
You are invited to attend one of two sessions (held concurrently) that explores the impact of gender and race on faculty members’ experiences of university campus climate. Through small group discussions, a review of the existing research, and large group discussions, you will gain tools to shift the dialogue from individual problems and solutions experienced by underrepresented colleagues towards seeking to acknowledge and identify institutional challenges and solutions related to gender and racial inequity in higher education.
This workshop is for faculty and staff who would like to learn strategies to be an ally and for those who would simply like to learn more about these issues in a collegial environment. Bring a friend!
This workshop will be led by Michigan Tech's own Advocate Team members (cisgender men only session) and by ADVANCE's PI team/Advocates & Allies Advisory Board members (women and other genders session). Details on Advocates and Allies are available on the ADVANCE webpage.
Lunch will be served so please register.
This workshop is being sponsored by the Advocates Team, the Advocates and Allies Advisory Board (A3B), and the ADVANCE initiative at Michigan Technological University.
