Two-Session Identity & Inclusion Workshops

Session I

Thursday, January 31, 2019
9 a.m.–noon
Davis Ballroom

Participants will explore their own identities using a model of identity development and consider the impact of power and privilege on the ways in which we understand our sense of self and that of others. This session offers an opportunity to reflect on the importance of our own identities as we work toward intentionally inclusive communities at Smith College. This session is part one of a two-part series and is intended for any interested staff or faculty member.

The expectation is that all participants will register for and attend both sessions of the workshop to explore identifiers including race, gender, class and sexuality in depth. If you can only attend one session, please email OIDE@smith.edu with that information.

Presenter: Dina Levi, Director of Inclusive Leadership, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Amherst College


Session II

Thursday, February 7, 2019
9 a.m.–noon
Davis Ballroom
RSVP to OIDE@smith.edu

This workshop is open to any staff or faculty member who has participated in Identity & Inclusion, Session 1.

Participants will continue to explore power and privilege as they play out in our personal experiences; this time through the lens of systemic marginalization. Participants will have the opportunity to consider how our own socialization contributes to dynamics of race, class, gender, and other identities as we work towards interrupting such systems of oppression.

Presenter: Dina Levi, Director of Inclusive Leadership, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Amherst College
