2017 10th Anniversary

The Social Justice Research Center celebrated our 10-year anniversary on October 17th, 2017 with a full-day of social justice events.  We invited the Avarna Group (https://theavarnagroup.com) to facilitate workshops on campus with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). 

  • AVARNA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) workshop for UW administrators This workshop introduced tools to more confidently articulate what DEI work entails, explain why it’s critical to the future of higher education, and build a plan for departments to move forward with this work. (view the presentation)

  • AVARNA DEI Strategic Planning workshop for social justice organizers The second workshop was specifically for SJRC past/present board members as well as other social justice organizers. This workshop focused on how social justice organizers can strategically plan and “keep the ball rolling” in order to implement DEI efforts. (watch the video) (view the presentation)

  • SJRC Scholar’s Panel discussion on social justice research: This was a dynamic, moderated panel discussion followed by an interactive workshop featuring Social Justice Research Center funded scholars from the Colleges of Agriculture, Education, and Arts & Sciences. Scholars described their social justice research approaches, shared their methods and experiences, and answered questions from faculty and students who are beginning social justice research. (watch the video)

  • Social Justice Awards Dinner with keynote speaker Dr. Francisco Rios, founding director of the SJRC. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Awards recognized and rewarded the efforts of faculty, staff, students, and community members to create and support an environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are valued both on campus and in the community. In addition, our Keynote speaker for the night was Dr. Francisco Rios, who was the SJRC’s founding director.
