Diversity Works: Cultivating Opportunities for Working with Allies

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.

Leadership from the Inside Out: Application Deadline

Leadership from the Inside Out: Know Yourself Before Leading Others focuses on helping participants assess some of their core leadership strengths and areas for development. Each session includes a substantial experiential component.

The workshop will take on May 1, 3, & 6 from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Participation in all three sessions is required. The workshop is highly interactive and experiential and participants are expected to be on time and prepared for each session.
