UNEION (UCAR|NCAR Equity and InclusiON) Training Series Level 1 (Cohort 2)
Join a cohort of your colleagues from across NCAR|UCAR to share, learn and talk about topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. This 4-part training series is an introduction to the ways in which gender and race can affect our experiences in society and the workplace. Together we will learn practical tools for intervening in problematic situations. Each session will focus on a different topic, with some required pre-readings and videos (about 2-3 hours' worth). We will participate in hands-on activities and shared discussions. Check your calendars, sign up now!
Because the subject matter builds on each session and we are creating a community, you must be able to attend ALL FOUR sessions.
