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 WU 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 3.0 (Commitment)
Examining Culture:  The goal of this interactive training is to facilitate the participant’s articulation of commitment to develop an educational, work, and clinical care environment that supports and welcomes a multitude of cultures.

Learning objectives:  Participants are expected to exit the training with an understanding of how micro-aggressions and other actions that undermine the WU mission can be addressed in a way that doesn’t cause blame or guilt.  Participants will have an opportunity to practice ‘speaking up’ by using the following six specific techniques:

  1. Assume good intent and explain impact
  2. Ask a question
  3. Interrupt and redirect
  4. Broaden to universal human behavior
  5. Make it individual
  6. Say ouch

Diversity 4.0 (Action)
Facilitating Diversity:  The goal of this interactive training is to provide participants with a plan of action for facilitating diversity and inclusion throughout the campus.

Learning objectives:  Participants are expected to exit the training with a strong skill set and personal plan to be proactive in combating bias and prejudicial statements or behaviors made on campus.  Participants will have a team building language that empowers them to speak up and speak out when words or behaviors are not in alignment with the mission statement of Washington University.

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.

Course Code:  HRDI34
