Stand Against Racism by Attending a Free Workshop

12 Mar

As part of the 2012 YWCA Stand Against Racism, the Center for Diversity Education is offering three Common Spaces workshops at no cost to participants. This is a great way for your group to participate in the Stand. If you have questions, call Ami Worthen at 254-7206 x 203.

Common Spaces Workshop Description:

When a customer or employee walks into your place of business, house of worship, school, or community center do they feel welcomed? At this hour long participatory workshop, participants will learn to assess a space for visual images, accessibility, and historical cues to create a welcoming climate for a wider more inclusive community. Deborah Miles, Diversity Education Instructor, will take the group through a hands-on activity to evaluate a space. We encourage you to take the tool back to your space and conduct your own evaluation.
