UI Chief Diversity Office provides leadership training for staff, faculty
To be added to either of these two workshops, contact Diversity Resources Coordinator Lindsay Jarratt in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity in the Chief Diversity Office at 319-335-0705 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop is highly interactive and hands on, and is definitely not your typical "diversity training."
Offices and departments can request the training, or individuals can sign up through Learning and Development in Employee Self-Service for the spring workshops, which are Feb. 2 and March 2. They hope to offer the training to students at the end of next semester.
