DEI SELF-FOCUSED SKILL-BUILDING (Part 3): Learn how to Build Inclusion and Dismantle Inequities


Virtual - Zoom  
Wednesday, December 08, 2021 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM   Add to Calendar Mountain Standard Time

If you have been doing, reading or hearing about Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) work, the words “systemic oppression” or (when narrowed to one protected class dimension, for instance) “systemic racism” are familiar terms. Sometimes you’ll hear “structural” instead of “systemic,” too. Used to describe that a complex infrastructure(s) reiterate and maintain inequities, coming to grips with these terms and the reality can feel very overwhelming. This session is geared to bringing what can seem untouchable and amorphous into focus… to realize that these infrastructures can be examined, dismantled and replaced by choices that are equitable and inclusive. By the end of our time, you will be able to: (1) Understand that our infrastructures are socially created, which means they can also be socially adjusted or removed (2) Recognize how structures both create and re-create the harmful, inequitable messaging, actions and outcomes (3) See how hidden these structures are – and learn some methods that hold them in place (4) Examine a structural example using a rubric that shows you how the structure is built and gives you the blocks for choosing an equitable path instead Facilitated by Megan Clough, MS, Director of Learning & Organizational Development at The University of Maine System. Megan has been a DEI practitioner and social justice advocate for the past 25 years. A Human Resources leader formally educated in Cultural Anthropology and Adult Development, Megan has held roles in Equal Opportunity, Talent, Learning, Organizational Development and HR Oversight has achieved renowned certifications that reflect and support her DEI practitioner expertise and skill.
