Let's Foster Inclusive Excellence: A Free Virtual Summer Series

This summer, the Professional Access and Equity Committee will be hosting a virtual series dedicated to inclusivity. This training can be adapted into all areas of higher education. Whether you work in admissions, advising, or financial aid, you'll interact with students from diverse backgrounds. To improve skills like relatability, empathy, and understanding, DEI training is crucial. It's not just beneficial for students; higher education professionals can also benefit. 
We aim to cultivate, advance, and foster discussions on inclusivity. The goal is to encourage the use of more inclusive/respectful language, uphold individual uniqueness, improve communication abilities in diverse environments, identify and address biases, and heighten understanding of identity, disability, sexual orientation, racism, and intersectionality. These sessions are also a safe space to share your experiences as well!
These sessions are recommended to admissions professionals who want an enhanced understanding of how to better serve diverse student populations. It is also recommended to those who want a better comprehension of how a person’s identity can influence their experiences within society. 
We will be learning aspects of inclusivity through the lens of Blair Imani and her book entitled Read This to Get Smarter: about Race, Class, Gender, Disability, & More. Purchasing the book is not required for participation but members are welcome to purchase a copy on their own.
