Fall 2018 Education Program


November 2018 Educational Offerings

EDI Table Talk: Gender Identity
Date: November 14, 12pm-1pm 

Workshop: Inclusion in the Workplace
Date: November 22, 10am - 12pm

Description: The University of Alberta Institutional Strategic Plan, identifies “Build a diverse, inclusive community of exceptional students, faculty, and staff from Alberta, Canada, and the world” as a strategic goal (For the Public Good).  To assist with the pursuit of this goal, our workshop will engage participants in a conversation to explore what it means to be inclusive and to have inclusive practices. Through interactive activities and thoughtful discussion, we will unpack what inclusion means. Together, we will answer the question: How do we engage with difference to create inclusive, innovative, and dynamic team environments? This session will offer practical tools and ideas to be more inclusive in thought and action. Presented by Barb McLean and Stephanie Carvalho, EDI Advisors, HRS

Workshop: Strategies to Identify Unconscious Bias
Date: November 27, 1pm-2pm

Description: We know that bias is natural and largely unavoidable. We also know that people are disposed to be biased against people who are unlike them and show more favour towards people who are like them; it’s not all about being negative. Suppressing or demonizing bias makes the problem worse not better. So how can we identify our bias and what do we do once we know? Come to our session to discuss these questions. Presented by Barb McLean, EDI Education Advisor, HRS
