Beyond Diversity & Inclusion Training
In this mini-episode of #InVinoFab
, Patrice shares about her experience and lessons learned at the Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging Conference https://dibconference.harvard.edu/
hosted on her campus. We appreciate when our organizations bring a community together to have challenging conversations about diversity and inclusion, but we agreed that a culture of belonging is something we need to embed into our daily practice at work.
--What grassroots initiatives, events, or efforts are being developed at your organization to talk about the complex issues around diversity and inclusion?
--What questions/activities do you put into your meetings to learn about others within your office?
--How are you embedding ways to gain a diverse or inclusive perspective?
--How are you making your teaching, learning, and office materials more accessible with universal design?
--Who might be a helpful resource at your campus, organization, or institution to consider how you might embed diversity and inclusion into your work?
Examples for inclusion and access:
-Share your current music or podcast playlist
-Host a potluck to share a favorite food or dish
-Add your pronouns at the signature of your email
-Use a microphone for presentations or larger meetings
-Consider size and style of font for screen readers
