Description

This workshop will help graduate students learn how to effectively engage with the students they teach and the audiences they encounter in workshops, conferences and presentations. While recognizing that diversity exists in the audience is a crucial first step, all too often that is where the commitment to equity ends. This workshop will build and improve upon graduate students’ knowledge of how to “raise the room”, so that we are promoting the underlying values of equity in each and every interaction. This session will help participants share and learn from each other, modeling the inclusive practices that can help us all honor and include everyone. Graduate students will walk away with a toolbox full of ideas that they can immediately implement in their next engagement!  To register, please sign up for this workshop at the Wellness Center in room 6422.
