Campus Climate Conversations
The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion has a series of workshops designed to help students and staff discuss issues of race and diversity on campus. These workshops are open to the public, free of charge, and facilitated by the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion.
The workshops include:
- Engaging in conversations about race – In this interactive session, you will learn how to have productive conversations about race that are both respectful and challenging. You will be given tips in order to facilitate difficult dialogues with others around topics such as power dynamics, stereotypes, microaggressions and cultural competency.
- Understanding privilege – Through this interactive workshop you will gain an understanding for what privilege means at UNC Charlotte by examining your own personal experience with it through self-reflection exercises that allow attendees the opportunity to see themselves differently than they have before; understand differences between individuals from different backgrounds; identify ways in which some people may benefit from their privilege while others do not; learn about resources available for exploring one’s own identity further; understand how systemic racism affects communities across campus today; examine our collective history as well as current events impacting local communities today; explore ways in which we can all work together toward social justice on campus—and beyond!
