The concept of the 21-day challenge was introduced several years ago by diversity expert Eddie Moore, Jr. to create greater understanding of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy, oppression and equity.
In August 2020, more than 2,500 higher education professionals participated in CUPA-HR’s first guided 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. We learned a lot and had the opportunity to engage in discussion during our weekly Town Hall events. Since then, an additional 1,000 CUPA-HR members have undertaken the challenge on their own or in small groups.
In 2021, CUPA-HR will offer new challenges that tackle inequities across several frequently marginalized groups. We hope you will join us for all of them! Taking action on these issues is imperative to the future of higher education, and HR professionals are uniquely positioned to be catalysts for change.
Participation is free. However, registration is required. See the "Live and On-Demand Options" section above for links to current challenges.
21-Day Challenges are open to CUPA-HR members only. All employees at member organizations are considered members of CUPA-HR and only need a CUPA-HR web account linked to their organization to register for the challenge.
