Social Justice Consultant to Lead Inclusive Leadership Sessions at UW-River Falls

Sept. 25, 2012--Social Justice consultant Becky Martinez will host three learning sessions about inclusive leadership at UW-River Falls on Friday, Oct. 5. All sessions are free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of them.

Inclusive leadership sessions include:

  • "Professional Development: Creating & Promoting an Inclusive Campus Community," 1-1:50 p.m., Falcon’s Nest, University Center. As institutions undertake the challenge to create inclusive, thriving environments, educators are expected to be part of this challenge. From theoretical concepts to self-reflection this interactive workshop will provides practical connections and tools to develop a more inclusive campus community. 
  • "Building Community as an Inclusive Leader," 3-4 p.m., Falcon’s Nest, University Center. We are all charged with creating an inclusive campus environment; this takes time, intentionality, self-awareness, and requires us to view the world through a diversity lens. This interactive workshop will provide connections and tools to build a welcoming campus community as an inclusive leader.
  • "Leading Through an Inclusive Lens," 6:30-7:30 p.m., Falcon’s Nest, University Center. For an inclusive community to be successful, students must develop self-awareness; inclusive leaders understand the systemic concepts of social justice.  This session will engage participants in authentic dialogue and provide tools to develop their leadership skills to be effective as an inclusive leader.
