Training, Education & Response Strategies for Success
Developing a Bias Response Team is only part of an institution’s response. What comes next in furthering your commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts?
- How do you get buy-in from your institution?

Seamlessly further your equity and inclusion efforts campus-wide, from the ground up.
