My role in DEI at PCOM and beyond
Everyone has a role in diversity, equity and inclusion at PCOM. This workshop will
explore foundational language, your identities and experiences, and goal setting for
incorporating DEI into your role at PCOM.
Allyship is a verb
Everyone has the opportunity to be an ally. Participants will learn what it means
to be an actor, ally, and accomplice; explore strategies to be an advocate for change;
practice strategies to be an active ally.
Unlearning Racism: Enhance Your Commitment to Equity and Social Justice
This program is a series of six facilitated sessions for staff and faculty to learn
and unlearn together. It is a brave and supportive space to explore privilege and
ways we can work to be better allies to Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC).
Participants must attend all six sessions to earn the DEI Certificate.
