Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Professional Development

Professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff, and graduate students to further diversity, equity and inclusion awareness, knowledge and skill sets allowing for critical analysis of the services UNH provides, and of the relational dynamics we seek in a diverse institution. In small group interactive sessions, we explore issues of social justice, equity and inclusion 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, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc.
