The Inclusion Menu

(with updated options!)

The Inclusion MENU features 50-minute conversation starters themed around diversity and inclusion. Unlike programming where you come to us, we bring these initiatives to you in your faculty and staff meetings, labs, or gatherings. Our goals is to bring diversity and inclusion programs directly to where you work. If you’re interested in hosting a session check out the instructions below.

Session Descriptions

We’ve all heard about implicit bias, but few of us understand its magnitude. This session uses the latest in behavioral science to educate you about implicit bias and the tactics you can use to reduce its impact. This session is recommended for those involved in recruitment.

While tremendous gains have been made  in LGBTQ+ access, like marriage equality and health equities, queer and trans people continue to face obstacles in the workplace and in the examination room. This session helps participants create atmospheres where LGBTQ+ people feel included and safe.
This session begins a conversation about how those with social privilege can work to address the conditions that lead to the minoritization of people who do not hold those same levels of social status. This session can be tailored to focus on particular manifestations of privilege (white; heterosexual; socio-economic; and “abled”) or be a more general session.
Microaggressions and their impact are not always obvious or well understood. This session explores practical tools to help address them. Participants will be introduced to the concept of micro-aggression, and learn how to address them.
This workshop is focused on being better practitioners for people who experience trans identities. We will discuss pronouns, gender inclusive terms, and use the educational work of trans activists to learn about gender identity and expression.

Words matter but the language that makes folks feel included changes with time. How do we know what words to use, and what approches to communicate ideas best faciliates learning? Espeically when working with a diverse audience? Inclsuive language and pedagogy provides an introduction to learn and decern what makes language inclusive and how to apply that to teaching and mentoring students. 

Disablities are an often over looked aspect of DEI. How do we fight abilism and ensure folks whose bodies and brains work differntly than the assumed majority feel valued and included? This workshop offers an introduction to disbalities and how to work with folks who have them in a welcoming and inclusive way.

Its not enough to just not be racist. Racism is embeded in every aspect of our lives and work. Practicing anti-racism is how we disentangle the subtle emebded forms of racism that prevents us from healing from these old colective wounds.
