Global Awareness-DEI: Cultural Awareness Building Blocks

This is a past event.

Presented by Michelle Allen. Cultural Awareness Building Blocks provides the framework for gaining a nuanced understanding of the various meanings and the potential impact of diversity in higher education and the workplace. The session explores the impact of identities in workplace interactions and relationships and presents strategies and resources to better navigate and embrace cultural differences.

Participants will:

  • Increase their understanding of cultural awareness and how it applies to their work and personal interactions
  • Become familiar with key concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Learn strategies and resources that contribute to an inclusive and welcoming environment.

*Lunch will be served at this event. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or if your schedule changes and you are unable to attend.

**Important Information about summer CTL events: All summer CTL workshops are currently planned as in-person events only, but this may change, depending on COVID numbers. Some events may also have a Zoom link for streaming. If Zoom streaming is available for an in-person event, you will find a "Stream This Event Now" link within the workshop description below. CTL points are not awarded for viewing Zoom streams of in-person CTL workshops. Points are only awarded for CTL streaming events if there is not an in-person attendance option.

Registration is required for in-person attendance only. You are always welcome to show up to CTL events without registering, but we ask that if food is being served at an in-person event, you wait until all pre-registered attendees have been served before serving yourself.
