Inspiring an understanding and inclusive community of professionals first requires examining our own awareness and perspectives. The Anti-Racism in Academia: A Learning Journey (ARiA) virtual series enables you to do that in a safe and open environment through small, confidential, discussion sessions that are open to all higher education employees.
For the month of October, ARiA presents our final installment of the #ROLLAP series, Part 5: Persist, in which we will discuss the importance of adopting persistence as a mindset. Want to be part of the discussion? Enrollment begins today, so sign up now for one breakout session of your choice. Sessions typically 'sell out' within 48 hours, but a waitlist is available.
Breakout sessions are private and will not be recorded. The ARiA team has designed the breakout sessions to be safe spaces to explore, share, listen, and learn. We have recruited volunteer session facilitators and provided each with the resources and guidelines to enable open, frank, and compassionate discussions that will promote personal and professional growth through awareness and expanded perspectives. We hope the suggested ideas, strategies, and examples in the sessions will empower you to lead from where you are.
