Today, more than ever, college campuses across the world are experiencing tremendous upheaval, a rise in student activism and institutions living in a world of uncertainty. Higher Education administrators must serve their diverse populations however, many feel ill equipped to recognize campus dynamics, solicit student experiences, and implement strategies to foster inclusive campus environments that address microaggression from the bottom up.
Those doing the work find themselves caught in a world where the idea of safe spaces are highly scrutinized, microaggressions and exclusionary behaviors, policies, and structures go unaddressed and ongoing debate of political correctness stifles progress and spreads confusion and frustration.
Join our expert presenter as she provides insight and best practices to assess and improve your campus climate. This webinar will give you practical steps and solutions and ensure you understand “what is right” and how to create an opportunity to move beyond civility towards a truly inclusive institution!
Naomi Sigg currently serves serves as the Director of Multicultural Affairs at Case Western Reserve University. (Click here for full bio)
More about our presenter:
I learn something new each time I talk with Naomi! I have partnered with her on multiple trainings and campus interventions over the past 5 years. I appreciate her strategic thinking, her ability to navigate and facilitate change in very complex and political situations, and the ease and perspective with which she approaches challenging situations. I am particularly impressed with her ability as a trainer and facilitator to motivate participants to learn and practice the tools and skills to create more inclusive campus environments. Participants have appreciated how she teaches with a balance among applied concepts, engaging personal stories, and challenging questions. I highly recommend Naomi as a social justice trainer and facilitator! Kathy Obear
