Graduate students from diverse backgrounds interact with individuals who, while we may consider them as members of ally communities, do not consistently act as allies. Participants will discuss examples of this challenge and possible methods to responding in constructive ways. Interactive activities include role-plays, scenarios, and vignettes in which participants can learn how to model “in the moment” response strategies.
Presented by Joseph Brown, Graduate Diversity Recruitment Officer, School of Humanities and Sciences; Associate Director for the Diversity & First-Gen Office.
