We are providing a monthly series of diversity and inclusion trainings that consist of four one-hour sessions.  Each session is designed to provide a greater understanding of what diversity means, how to define it, what aspects of diversity affect us (i.e., biases and prejudices) how it manifests in our day-to-day thoughts and actions, how to recognize it and how to mitigate it.  The ultimate goal is to use education, personal experiences, and highly interactive exercises to shift the WashU culture from a place of passive awareness to a place of active allyship where everyone takes ownership for facilitating a warm, welcoming and supportive environment for people of all backgrounds.  

As we conduct each session in a progression from 1.0 to 4.0, we intend to deliver the following:

Diversity 1.0 (Awareness)
Examining Culture:  The goal of this interactive training is to provide participants with a basic awareness of cultural diversity and to explore how culture influences the workplace, campus and clinical care environment at WashU.

Facilitators provide research and data that build a case for why all on campus should support diversity and inclusion initiatives.  The words “diversity” and Inclusion” are defined and the differences between the two are addressed.  

Learning objectives:  Participants are expected to exit the training with a heightened awareness of how diversity impacts the workplace and their role in creating a welcoming space for all people.

Diversity 2.0 (Understanding)
Examining Unconscious Bias:  The goal of this interactive training is to highlight the concept of unconscious bias and how it influences individuals on campus.

Learning objectives:  Participants are expected to exit the training with an understanding of how unconscious bias plays out in one’s personal and professional life and how it can be mitigated.  Participants will be encouraged to engage in self-reflection, individuation, direct contact and working together on teams.

Audience:  This class is for Danforth Campus Staff only.

Facilitator:  Monica Black Robinson, Diversity & Inclusion Leader

Registration Fee:  There is no fee for this workshop.

No-Show and Late Cancellation Fees:  There will be a charge equal to the registration fee to cover the cost of materials for no-shows and late cancellations (less than 5 business days prior to class).  For classes with no registration fee, this charge is $50.
