We are gearing up for another semester of Faculty Diversity Dialogues. Please join us as we engage in complex, inclusive conversations about race/ethnicity-based and sexuality/gender-based privilege and prejudice, invisible bias and microaggressions, civility and critical language awareness, disability accommodations and equity-oriented teaching.
The UMKC Faculty Diversity Dialogues program is a faculty-driven initiative designed to lead and inspire civil, gnarly, honest conversations about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The program seeks to improve the working environment at UMKC by encouraging ALL faculty to take responsibility for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
The co-coordinators of the Faculty Diversity Dialogues program are Professor Stephen Dilks, Department of English (email@example.com), and Associate Professor Mikah Thompson, School of Law (firstname.lastname@example.org). All sessions will be from noon to 1:30 p.m.
