Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Moving from Education to Organizational Assessment

  • September 01, 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Online


Over the academic year there has been a great outpouring of calls for diversity, equity, and inclusion  (DEI) training and education. Many institutions of higher education have taken up the mantle of engaging its workforce and students with relevant training in the area of DEI. These efforts are to be applauded. To follow-up on these efforts, we must ask the question of how to use these trainings and educational opportunities as a springboard to assess our higher education institutions in order to affect change. This workshop will give a timeline of one institution’s journey from moving from DEI training and education to organizational assessment. Participants will:
  1. Learn and be able to articulate how to follow up DEI training with assessment of organizational DEI competency
  2. Be given an organizational assessment tool to utilize
  3. Begin the process for planning for organizational assessment related to DEI
