Diversity trainer and sociologist Dr. LaQueta Wright leads this workshop which will generate a common language to help faculty to define the primary elements of culture. Participants will learn how race, class and gender affect social interactions among students, faculty and staff. In addition to increasing cultural self-awareness, participants will acquire basic skills for engaging in cross-cultural communications and bridging cultural conflict (e.g. prejudice and discrimination) in the classroom and on campus. Attendees who successfully complete this session will receive a Diversity Certificate. Seats are limited!
