RSVP to Beyond Buzzwords

Diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging … these words have been floating around more and more over the past few years. But what do they mean, really, and what are the implications of these words for the graduate student experience. This two-part workshop will include self-reflection, interactive activities, and tangible skill-building to help you be a change agent in your own classrooms, labs, and communities.
