New ‘Making Marquette Inclusive’ discussion series to launch; faculty and staff invited to participate

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion and the University Committee on Equity and Inclusion has announced the launch of the Making Marquette Inclusive discussion series.  

This 10-week program provides employees with the opportunity to examine issues of diversity, equity and inclusion as they relate to our day-to-day work on campus and reinforce the value of working across differences.  

Through a curriculum of articles, videos and facilitated conversations, participants in this mini course will explore themes such as implicit bias, privilege, microaggressions, the promotion of equity and effective dialogue orientations. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon the relevance of these topics to their own lives, discuss with colleagues and apply the concepts to their work in an action-oriented framework.  

Office units and departments are encouraged to engage in this series as cohorts, but individuals are also encouraged to participate 

With questions, contact Jacki Black, associate director for Hispanic initiatives.
