Virtual Event

The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty, staff, and graduate students to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.

In this session, participants will discuss and define race and the levels of racism and review research on how racism is perpetuated in today’s society. We will also explore how our experience(s) influence our perceptions of others and develop strategies to support racial healing and racial equity.
