Faculty, staff invited to diversity workshops
Faculty and staff are invited to participate in two half-day diversity workshops sponsored by the Rhode Island Higher Education Training Consortium.
“Diversity and Inclusion Fundamentals” will be held Thursday, Oct. 2 at Providence College. The first session, “But I’m Not Prejudiced,” runs from 9 a.m. to noon, while the second session, “Moving from Political Correctness to Purposeful Communication,” runs from 1-4 p.m.
During these highly interactive workshops, participants will explore their backgrounds, beliefs and experiences around diversity, hear others’ perspectives and discuss strategies for creating and sustaining an inclusive, equitable and productive workplace and campus community.
For more information, visit the Rhode Island Higher Education Training Consortium website. Faculty and staff who are interested in attending the workshops should contact their supervisor, who will work with the Office of Human Resources regarding placement and funding.
