Create a Community with Shared Norms and Values
Trainings for Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) are often seen as extra or not beneficial in an individualistic lens toward personal or professional development. There are biases towards J.E.D.I./DEI work that can stem from political, cultural or personal backgrounds. This work needs to be hosted in formats and with methods that allow for the highest levels of belonging and acceptance – not alienating some people due to their belief systems or political views. All views and values need to be heard and understood. All of this can be difficult to accomplish when institutional or colleague support is lacking.
Join us on April 18, 2023 for this online training session, when our presenter will illustrate thought leadership derived from a combination of personal narratives and multiple areas of the social sciences, historic knowledge and professional research. He will use these areas of expertise with a focus on genuine inclusion and empathic connections to form belonging.
You will gain knowledge about core principles pivotal to effective and successful J.E.D.I. work, explore your own personal biases, and be able to tap into a framework to use in your own work on your campus with program development for faculty, staff and students.
Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Present a shared terminology for prevalent topics of J.E.D.I. discussions – set shared community norms or values.
- Explore and analyze concepts of Identity and Intersectionality – understand how these concepts pertain to our students as they study abroad or international students who come to study in the U.S. so you can help everyone feel welcomed, acknowledged and important.
- Illustrate forms of unconscious bias that can impact our perceptions of students and influence our interactions with them – acknowledge your own personal bias to ensure you are not unintentionally alienating or marginalizing students.
- Guide your campus community through facilitated discussions on areas of focus to apply a J.E.D.I. lens to program development, faculty, staff and students – draw from your own experiences as you engage and connect with participants with empathy, wisdom, understanding and listening skills.
- Develop and fine-tune areas of focus to apply a J.E.D.I. lens to your program development – tap into a proven framework in your own J.E.D.I. work utilizing the design thinking model.
Brian Henry currently serves as the Program Manager for the Office of International Education at the University of Denver.
