Webinar | Anti-Racism in Academia: A Learning Journey – Persist (Educause)
January 4, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am
n response to the dialogue across EDUCAUSE community groups and within our personal lives, a small group of community leaders have developed the Anti-Racism in Academia: A Learning Journey (ARiA) series. The ARiA series was created to inspire a more understanding and inclusive community in higher education by engaging professionals of all levels and across disciplines. Combatting racism on a personal, professional, and communal scale requires time and intentional effort; it really is a journey of discovery and understanding.
The ARiA series framework is organized into five parts: Reach Out, Listen, Learn, Act, Persist.
This month’s focus is on Persisting to sustain your diversity efforts. Come join us for the kickoff webinar, and sign-up for a breakout discussion.
We want to enable participants to get the most out of their learning journey. We designed the ARiA framework to accomplish three main goals:
- Create safe spaces to explore, share, and learn.
- Promote personal and professional growth through expanded awareness and expanded understanding of different racial perspectives.
- Empower participants to foster a more inclusive and understanding higher ed community with expanded ideas, perspectives, and strategies.
