Write and Speak to Release, Restore, and Reenergize
Have you suffered from microaggressions due to your race, gender, ability, or witnessed such microaggressions against others? Have you suffered unfair/inequitable treatment or witnessed such committed against others due to race, gender, sexuality, or ability? The year 2020 delivered major shocks to most of our systems, from which many of us are still trying to regroup and recover. Microaggressions and inequitable treatment alone can be greatly demoralizing; when added to the other struggles 2020 threw at us, it could be devastating. In this workshop, we will discuss writing strategies including positive affirmations, gratitude logs, and journaling, that may help keep us buoyed as we kick off the new semester and new calendar year. The workshop will include a short writing assignment and an open mic opportunity for those who want to share (bring one of your favorite quotes, poems, or adages).

10:15 to 11:45 am
Issues with Equity:Let's Talk About Difficulties, Struggles, and Frustration
As we are becoming increasingly familiar with the principles of equity, it is important to engage in robust discussions about some of the ideas that are being introduced. To effectively do so, many perspectives and experiences should be considered, including voices that may challenge some of the recommendations made in the name of equity. Due to time restrictions, many equity workshops focus predominantly on defining concepts, terms, and theories, but leave limited opportunity for faculty to voice concerns or question about some of the content being presented. This workshop seeks to create a space where some ideas surrounding equity can be questioned, challenged, and further discussed. By doing so, the goal of this workshop is to gain valuable insights, reveal potential blind spots, and address faculty concerns. Hosted by: Nino Conley. Meets State Professional Development Guideline B: Staff development, in-service training, and instructional improvement, Guideline F: Related activities, such as student advising, guidance, orientation, matriculation services, and student, faculty, and staff diversity.
