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.

This is an advanced session. Participants are expected to have a foundational understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. Individuals attending will have an opportunity to practice strategies for continued and long-term engagement with justice work, particularly when it gets hard. Building stamina is essential for sustainable change. In this session, participants will work to challenge their own behaviors within, find their role in, and understand their contributions to that change.
