Annual Diversity Conference

April 13, 2018

This conference, now in its ninth year, features an exciting list of speakers and a keynote address. Each year a central theme frames a series of conversations, inviting participants to reflect on their personal views and interactions within the University community, the greater Rochester community, and society as a whole.



Racial Equity Learning Series
Understanding the System of Racial Inequity–Pilot Training

Several Dates | Noon to 1:00pm | School of Nursing, HWH 1W-501

Understanding the System of Racial Inequity is a starting place, ideal for those new to structural racism. These sessions aim to provide a “systems” frame that allows individual and group exploration into the nature of structural racialization; understand what it means to use a systems analysis for understanding structural inequities; and develop emotional intelligence and practice strategic approaches to address structural inequity. Sixty minute sessions will be facilitated by School of Nursing Diversity & Inclusion Council members and the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity: Jonathan Wetherbee, Rebecca Tucker, Yvette Conyers and Ashley Campbell.

UR Employees can register for this sessions via MyPath.
