    The CFAES Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Office for Research and Graduate Education will be co-hosting dissertation/thesis write-ins throughout the spring semester. Like previous write-ins, this will serve as a quiet space for students to get together to write independently in community. Students may come and go as they wish and are welcome to bring an additional monitor. Below is a schedule of the sessions that will take place throughout the semester.

    Have you ever been in a conversation when someone said something biased that made you uncomfortable, but you were not sure how to respond? Many of us struggle to address these all too common situations, whether in the classroom, the workplace, while spending time with friends, or enjoying time with family. Even though we want to do what is right and stand up for equality, we do not always know how to take action in that awkward moment—especially if we are not sure whether the person making the comment actually meant to cause harm.

    This interactive workshop will explore how identities, beliefs, and backgrounds shape our perceptions of other people in ways that can negatively impact the people with whom we interact and unconsciously widen the diversity gap. Participants will learn how to identify and empathetically respond to implicit bias in order to foster a more inclusive environment at work, home, and in their communities. This workshop provides a nurturing and judgement-free space for participants to share and discuss their experiences and learn strategies for being an active bystander.
