Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Professional Development

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS -
 

SJE Awareness  (offered at 2 locations)

Social Justice Education(SJE)is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff and graduate students to further their awareness, knowledge and skill sets allowing for critical analysis of the services we provide, and of the relational dynamics we seek in a diverse institution. We will explore “social justice” via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, size, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc. This process will include open and honest discussions, readings, and interactive/experiential activities in a respectful environment.
