2020 Annual Conference Virtual Workshop (Conference Registration Required)
Open access session coming soon!
Wednesday, June 24, 2020
2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion starts with us. The session aims to answer the questions: What is DEI? Why should I care about it? What work do I need to do to become a more equitable educator? In this workshop, participants will identify ways in which we can expand our awareness through self-analysis. Participants will engage in learning activities that provide an introductory overview of DEI, including reflection on their identities, privileges, biases, spheres of influences, and beliefs related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
