UW Plans Workshops on Diversity for Faculty, Staff, Students

A nationally recognized expert in creating inclusive organizational environments will lead workshops for University of Wyoming faculty, staff and students in February.

Kathy Obear, a consultant with the firm Alliance for Change, will be on the UW campus Feb. 12-13 at the invitation of UW Chief Diversity Officer Emily Monago, charged by President Laurie Nichols with leading the effort to increase programming on diversity and inclusion, as called for in UW’s strategic plan.

Co-Sponsors of the workshops are the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Office of Academic Affairs, Division of Students Affairs and Department of Athletics.

Workshop Schedule:
Monday, Feb. 12

  • Faculty workshop, 1-4 p.m., Wyoming Union Ballroom. Participants will learn how to create inclusive classrooms, recognize unintended classroom dynamics and microagressions, and facilitate more effective classroom conversations.
  • Student workshop, 7:30-9:30 p.m., Wyoming Union Ballroom. Especially invited are student leaders and student employees, but others may attend as well. Participants will learn how to recognize and interrupt exclusionary dynamics and create greater inclusion.

Tuesday, Feb. 13

  • Two-hour staff workshop, 8:30-10:30 a.m., Wyoming Union Ballroom. This is for staff members who are’t able to attend the full-day workshop. Participants will explore tools to interrupt and engage microagressions and other exclusionary dynamics, and use an inclusion lens to analyze and revise policies and practices.
  • Full-day staff workshop, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Wyoming Union Ballroom. Staff members who can stay for the full day also will identify personal action steps for creating inclusive, affirming campus environments. Faculty interested in this workshop should call the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at (307) 766-6672.

*Staff members please note that attendance at this event should be a collaborative discussion between employee and supervisor to ensure the effective and efficient operation of the unit.
