Tuesday, October 8 | 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET

Sponsored by

$95 for CUPA-HR Members | $195 for Nonmembers

It takes a collaborative effort to cultivate organizational capacity and individual capability around diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). But are there enough meaningful conversations around DEI happening on your campus? Does your campus culture foster commitment to and engagement in building a diverse and inclusive community? How can DEI champions at your institution gain followers and garner support?

During this interactive workshop, Phyllis Braxton-Frierson, president and founder of PINK Consulting, LLC, will take a deep-dive into how colleges and universities can engage their workforces in active and continual learning around DEI. Phyllis will explore with attendees:

  • Common language and definitions related to DEI.
  • How “diversity” and “inclusion” differ and how those differences can affect approaches to addressing campus culture.
  • Data to understand perceptions around DEI and how they can assist in changing the way we think, learn and ultimately behave.
  • Some benefits of incorporating DEI as a strategy – for individuals, teams and the institution.

If time permits, Phyllis will also share some tools individuals can use to assess where they are as DEI leaders and how organizations can gain an understanding of where they are on the continuum of diversity and inclusion.

Before the workshop, explore CUPA-HR’s diversity resources for creating inclusive communities, and check out the DEI Maturity Index.
