Making Excellence Inclusive Day
1:00pm - 4:00pm (Virtual Meeting)
"Toolkit for an Inclusive Community: Understanding and Addressing Racial Bias, Hate Speech, and Microaggressions"
This year, the Making Excellence Inclusive Day Program will be an interactive event designed to provide tools for faculty and staff to better address three areas that continue to be of concern for us at Georgia College as we try to build and sustain an inclusive community: racial bias, hate speech, and microaggressions.
Instead of a full-day program with a keynote speaker and break-out sessions, this year, because we will not be able to gather in person as a group, the program will be a virtual afternoon program, where we focus on our three challenging areas together as a community. The program will be held on Thursday, August 6th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm via Zoom. You can register for the program using the link below. Faculty and staff will be sent a Zoom link to join the program.
After welcoming remarks from President Dorman and Dr. Carolyn Denard, Chief Diversity Officer, the program will proceed with approximately 45 minutes devoted to each area followed by a five-minute break. There will be short video presentations before each segment that provides an informative and compelling introduction to the issue, followed by a panel discussion by faculty and staff and with audience participation. These discussions will address specific tools that we all can use to try to confront each of these issues on our campus. Dr. Diane Goodman, Diversity Trainer and Consultant, and Dr. Carolyn Denard will serve as moderators for the program.
Our goal this year is to understand our challenges better and to provide practical tools that we can use to address them. We invite all faculty and staff to attend what we believe will be an informative and enjoyable Making Excellence Inclusive Day Program. We hope that with what you learn here you will be able to begin this new and challenging year with the tools you need to continue to make our Georgia College community a welcoming and inclusive place to work and grow.
