Friday’s workshop: ‘Inclusivity and Equity at UW-Green Bay’

UW-Green Bay’s new Inclusivity and Equity Certificate Program resumes its 2014-15 series of offerings with a workshop at 12:30 p.m. this Friday (Feb. 6) in Phoenix Room A of the University Union. Staff member Stacie Christian and student Jacob Immel are co-presenters for the 120-minute session “Inclusivity and Equity at UWGB, part I.” Participants will gain an overview of the Inclusive Excellence concept, practice how to identify the differences between hate crimes and bias behaviors, and learn to identify examples of proactive Inclusive Excellence strategies that can be used in the classroom and workplace. Reserve a spot in Friday’s workshop.

Certificate series lists four ‘Inclusive Excellence’ programs for spring
The new certificate program is designed to develop and recognize commitment to the UW-Green Bay Inclusive Excellence initiative and UW System efforts to promote diversity and equity. The Inclusivity and Equity Certificate Program consists of a combination of professional development, self-study and community service — all connecting related lectures, workshops, programming and activities to a larger purpose. Stacie Christian, coordinator for Inclusive Excellence and the Pride Center, will lead two of this spring’s sessions, with the AIC’s Justin Mallett and faculty member Forrest Brooks leading the others.
